Preparing for Hurricane Irma Guide

There are 2.5 days left until a potentially devastating force of nature rams into your city. Florida hasn't seen a hurricane of quite this magnitude like the 180 mph category 5 hurricane, Irma. Advanced preparations have already been in play for days and mandatory evacuations have also been issued in surrounding areas.

No one that I know of is taking this situation lightly especially after the devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Texas a few weeks ago. It seems like a waiting game as we diligently watch the weather forecast for a more concrete prediction. Do we get up and go now before it's to late? ... 

Many of you already know the drill but here are some resources and checklists that may be helpful in our situation.

Stay safe!
