Preparing for El Nino

This year's El Nino is forecast to be one of the strongest winters on record, bringing predictions of the worst weather in years. The best advice to weather El Nino's rain, wind and flooding is to be prepared and stay informed. Government experts recommend you have an emergency kit for your home and car. Your kits should contain food and water for at least 3 days for every family member, a first aid kit, flashlights, radio, wrench, gloves, whistles and sanitation supplies. Don't forget supplies for your pets.
