This is a how-to informal, short description of how to accomplish Tempest gale storm preparedness from a preppers perspective, this is greatly simplified from the overall discussion of the topic, and meant for non-experts to help them become a severe tropical cyclone survivalist.

Get to know your local emergency management agency’s recommendations if you live near a coastal area, study up on FEMA the Federal emergency management agency’s recommendations for a tropical Hurricane Storm. Having a flood insurance policy, before disaster strikes.
Stockpiling emergency supplies, as your budget allows.
Having communications such as a NOAA enabled radio, that is battery powered, solar powered, and crank powered is my recommendation, if your budget allows. Batten down the hatches, of your apartment or home, Prior to the storm arriving, if your home is not equipped with hurricane shutters, security window film, or another device to protect the windows, I recommend using 5/8’s marine grade plywood and board up all windows. Always plan ahead, and know the location of your local shelters in case you need to leave your home. Also ,I recommend discussing with your family at least two routes in case you need to evacuate. If you do not own a car, Or have some other way to leave in case of an emergency, try contacting friends and or family for help, before the danger of a hurricane is present. Ask your local authorities if there is a registry if yourself or a family member has special medical needs in case of a power outage. Make sure all family members know how to shut off the electricity, the gas, and the water in case of any crisis situation. Pick a meeting place in advance in case you become separated from your family. Also I recommend picking a out-of-town friend to call to report to, that all family members are safe. Hurricane season, for the Atlantic and central Pacific dates are June 1 through November 30, for the eastern Pacific the dates are May 15 through November 30. These are general dates, so before hurricane season starts I recommend having a three day supply of water for each family member and pet. The United States government recommends 1 gallon per person, I recommend more, 2 to 3 gallons per person per day. Also,I recommend cleaning and then filling your bathtub full of water. At minimum I recommend having a three day supply of nonperishable food that doesn’t require cooking per person. I recommend having at least one flashlight, and a set of extra batteries for the flashlight, if your budget also allows I recommend glow sticks. I also recommend having a radio as I stated before that is not solely relied on electricity ,but is battery powered, solar powered, or manually crank powered , to monitor weather conditions before, after and during the hurricane. I also recommend having a first aid kit on hand, with an instruction booklet with first aid knowledge. I recommend having at least a seven day supply of medications.
