Now is the time to order your refills if you take prescription medications, just in case you are forced to evacuate or your pharmacy is shut down because of power or flooding issues. Pharmacist Samantha Themas at Memorial Regional says you need at least a 2 week supply of your prescription and over-the-counter medications. If your medicine needs to be refrigerated, she says you should buy some dry ice to keep it cool if you don't have a generator. Keep a first-aid kit handy and make sure you have bottled water in it so you can clean any scrapes or cuts you may get during the storm.
