12 Things to Never Do During a Hurricane

2. Do not forget a solar power kit

You may not think to pack a solar power kit with your emergency supplies, but when a storm hits and the power goes out, you’ll be happy to have it. Having a solar charging kit can mean all the difference in the world. You can opt for simple solar panel that keeps your phone alive so that you can contact loved ones, or you can splurge for a more comprehensive solution that can keep larger equipment running—something you will want to think about if you or your family members need power for medical equipment. Either way, be sure to stock your home with a solar power kit in case things go dark.
