Link to National Hurricane Preparedness site
This website is set up to help you go through the preparedness process especially for hurricanes. If you are in a hurricane prone area, you especially want to be familiar with NHC–the national hurricane center and how you can check it for all hurricane related warnings, etc.
Also, a NOAA radio is particularly helpful to receive all weather related warnings and alerts at any time of the day or night. These can be purchased in many different places and for different prices. Some are like alarm clocks. These will warn you of weather conditions even if you are asleep. Check them before you buy. For some, they may not warn you at all if they remain unopened in your kit or if they need batteries and run out, etc. Know what it is you are purchasing and how to keep it working.

Bone Marrow Donor Opportunities
Want the chance to save a life? All they need at first is a swab in your mouth. Check out this website for more information.
There are two ways you can help someone. One is with the marrow taken from bone, another is from cells removed from your blood.
I tried but was rejected because of some of my skeletal problems. But, it might be the perfect option for you to save someone just by sharing what you already have.
