Use the opportunity now to make arrangements with family or friends as this is part of an individual’s responsibility.

At the same time, review your Hurricane Supply Kit which should contain your identity documents (e.g. Passport, ID Card, Driver’s License, SZV Card), non-perishable food, water, medication, flashlight, battery operated radio, and insurance documents. These should be placed in a ready-to-go bag when staying with family or friends.

For those whose home structure is not good, seven (7) shelters will be open as of 5.00 PM Monday afternoon.

Be responsible, be prepared!
