Having been through hurricanes Ike and Rita, evacuated for hurricane Andrew, and having worked an evacuee shelter for hurricane Katrina, I am here to answer your questions.

People that have been through a hurricane are welcome to help answer questions.

Have at least 1 week of food and water for every person in your group
Evacuate low lying areas
LED flashlights are better then old style bulbed flashlights
Buy lithium batteries
Buy LED flashlights with long battery life and low lumens for inside the house
Candles and kids do not mix
Secure important papers
Do not forget about pets

Take hurricanes seriously, they are nothing to play with

If you can't park your car in a garage...

Don't park under trees. Even small ones. The branches will scratch tick-tack-toe boards all over your car. (Also same advice for avoiding angering ex-girlfriends.)

Don't park by buildings with 'spanish tile' rooves. They become machine guns, firing 3 pound ceramic tiles at 100 mph at the same location. They Will put a crater in your hood.

off the top of my head...
