Hurricane season generally lasts from June through mid-October, and OnStar has some tips to stay prepared in case of an emergency. 

1) Pack an emergency kit. Your kit should include non perishable food, bottled water, extra chargers for phones and other eletronics, and a battery powered flashlight and radio. Check supplies of medicine and batteries as well. 

2) Plan. Does everyone in your family know your evactuation plan? Do you have a designated meeting spot? If you and your family need to be evacuated from your home or town, do you have a friend or relative to stay with? 

3) Stay informed. Check the weather ahead of time and stay on top of major changes as well as storm watches and warnings.
