Handy items during a storm or hurricane include wooden shutters for windows and a secondary source of power such as a generator. A portable car battery could be useful in an emergency. An emergency kit should include enough bottled water to last several days and some pre-packaged food like that found in camping supply stores. In addition to a First Aid kit, also have a manually chargeable emergency radio, a cell phone that can be charged off the radio, a large-lens flashlight, blankets and clothing stored in plastic bags, and toiletry items.
