We had a hurricane kit in NC, here in CA we call it an earthquake kit. Ours includes:
battery operated radio
5-gallon collapsible water jugs
a couple of single use grills
canned tuna &chicken
fast food packets (catsup, taco sauce, mayo)
jars of cheese food product
Pet food and treats
Edit: I Should have mentioned, we have a small fire proof file box that we keep hubby's military records, mortgage & insurance papers, birth certificates, SS's baby book and our social security cards. We also have pet carriers for each of the cats.
Would you believe, we went through seven hurricanes and the only time we've ever been told to evacuate was when a construction crew (not one of mine) ruptured a gas line. By the time hubby (I was at work) got all the animals into his truck and ready to go they had it secured and stopped the evacuation.
