Check out www.ready.gov for all kinds of preparedness information. And don't forget disaster kits for pets! Also, Red Cross shelters do not allow animals. Check with your local authorites. I know of two county shelters on the Mississippi Coast that allow them.
Many state emergency management agencies plan to use social media (like Twitter) this year get the word out about evacuation routes. (FEMA, too).
One other word of advice: have more than three days cash on hand.
