MIX 101.5 WILL BE STREAMING UPDATES ON HURRICANE FLORENCE AS IT MAKES LANDFALL.
Have a battery powered radio on hand if power is lost. MIX 101.5 will be bringing you the latest news via WRAL TV and the National Weather Service.
The Red Cross urges these three steps:
Build a disaster kit that contains supplies for about three days, to include a gallon of water per person per day, non-perishable food, a flashlight and extra batteries, a first aid kit, medications and copies of important documents. Other recommended items are available at redcross.org/kit. Remember items for young children such as diapers, and family members with special medical needs.
Come up with an emergency plan.
Be informed about how local authorities will notify you, whether through local media or NOAA Weather Radio stations or channels.
You should also download the free Red Cross Emergency App to have real time information about the storm, shelter locations and hurricane safety tips at your fingertips. The Emergency App is available in app stores by searching for the American Red Cross or going to redcross.org/apps.
