The former head of the National Hurricane Center has some last minute tips for Floridians preparing for Irma.
According to Rick Knabb, an often forgotten hurricane supply is cash. That’s because he says when the power goes out, ATMs and credit cards won’t work.
In another Twitter post, Knabb also urged those buying generators not to run them indoors because the resulting carbon monoxide poisoning could wipe out your entire family.
And, he recommends those who don’t live in an evacuation zone or mobile home should identify someone who does and make that their evacuation destination.
