Due to Hawaii’s isolation and vulnerability, the Red Cross recommends that people prepare their emergency kits for 14 days and bring their emergency supplies with them to shelters. Airports and ports may be damaged by the storm and slow down the resupply process for local stores.

Pets entering a pet-friendly shelter must be in a pet carrier or cage for safety and owners must provide water and food for their pets and will be expected to assist in the care for their pet.

The Red Cross encourages everyone to be prepared before disasters strike: Get a disaster kit, make a plan and be informed. Go here for more information: www.redcross.org/local/hawaii/…
