What will hurricanes do to the oil slick in the Gulf? The CDC is monitoring potential health threats or conditions across the five Gulf States that may arise as a result of human exposure to the oil spill. In the case of a hurricane or tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico, here are quick facts that families need to know.

Get Supplies -

  • Stock your home with emergency supplies that you and your family may need during the emergency period.
  • Make sure that you have at least a 3-5 day supply of non-perishable food and water.
  • Include prescription medications, baby supplies and any additional items for special medical needs.
  • Place an emergency kit in your car.

    Make a Plan

  • Contact your local Red Cross and ask what types of disasters are most likely to happen.
  • Meet with your family and discuss why you need to prepare for disaster.
  • Complete the disaster plan checklist.
