One devastating hurricane has already come through Houston, and another has blown through Puerto Rico. As Hurricane Irma makes its way towards Florida, those in it’s path are starting to get ready to either evacuate or hunker down and wait it out.
Some people, like students or people who’ve only recently relocated to Florida, have never weathered out a hurricane before – especially not one of Irma’s size. While there’s plenty of lists of things that should be done to prepare for a hurricane, very few people are discussing what shouldn’t be done.
What are the stupidest things one can do before a hurricane hits? Let’s find out.

It’s important to shop early while the shelves are still stocked to make sure you have everything you need to weather the storm!
