With hurricane season underway, East Mississippi Electric Power Association is helping area residents prepare in case a storm strikes.

The organization hosted its third annual Severe Weather Safety Day at the main office in Meridian.

Hurricane survival kits filled with everything from food to flashlights were on display to remind people of what all they might need to survive through a storm.

"We want people to be prepared," said EMEPA's Lydia Walters. "We're talking about how to prepare your family with disaster supply kits, how power is restored, generator safety and Red Cross is here offering additional info. We want the public to know how important it is to prepare and to prepare before the storm hits."

The Tennessee Valley Authority was also on hand to talk about what you can do around your house to save money and conserve energy.

    I read this article about getting prepared for hurricanes and thought that I would pass along the name of an online company that I use http://www.survivalkitsonline.com being from California I know all how important it is to prepare for the expected unexpected. We know an eathquake is going to come but we don't know when. Wishing you all the best! Sammy
