Hurricane preparation from a Canadian

I grew up more that 400 miles away from an ocean. The biggest weather events I had to prepare for were snow and cold.

I’ve lived in NC for almost 10 years, have not been through much more than power outages for a few hours due to storms. Getting ready for #Florence though. Updating prep and recovery stuff at and here over the next few days.
