TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Earlier this month, many of us in the Big Bend began preparing for Hurricane Irma.
Stores sold out of nearly every canned food item, water, bread and batteries.
With Hurricane Irma causing mass devastation in South Florida, some may think it's wise to donate their supplies and food from their kit to those who need it more. While helpful, this is not the best idea for your own personal hurricane kit.
Experts say that it's important to keep supplies on hand and your kit fully stocked and out of mind until the time comes to use it.
