I would add to your hurricane kit list -- a small TV with an antenna, preferable one that doesn't use 12 "D" batteries. Even if you have to wait for the power to come back on to use it, it will be better than no TV.
During Frances, my wife and I used our little 8 inch, car-lighter-powered TV to monitor the storm since we lost cable at 11am Saturday followed by power that evening.
It was actually fun getting the kids to bed then sneaking out and taking turns in the minivan (parked right by our front porch). Best investment ever!
