If you are, I hope you get out OK, or at least hunker down in a safe place.

If you decide to leave, do so early. Carry only what you need in clothing for about a week. Make sure you have water, snacks, and food you can eat on the go. Vienna Sausage, jerky, canned fruits, apples, oranges, grapes-prepared sandwiches, all good items to bring along.
If you have the space, a travel gas grill would be good to have (about 20 to 30 bucks). That, a spatula and big fork, some small propane bottles, matches, aluminum foil, and you can cook burgers, hot dogs, ham, bacon, chicken, pretty much anything you can cook on a bigger grill. An ice chest would be nice to keep drinks and meats cold.
Make sure to bring a couple rolls of toilet paper (there could be times in stopped traffic you might need to run to the bushes), oh, and some hand sanitizer.

Remember that the farther you get up the road, the more packed it will be and slowdowns will be the norm.
If the traffic is stopped for a long time, turn off the engine for a while. Make sure you do not get below a half tank of gas and top off often. If the traffic is solid and the interstate looks like a parking lot, try to get off at the next exit and see if a back roads route is available.

One last thing is you need to get safe and stay safe.

Jerry, everybody is at risk, and some of the great mets that I go by are pointing out some potential bad scenarios including a possible hit for NY and New England, NOT SUPER LIKELY, but there is a short wave trough off British Columbia that could change things in a big way, AND even though Florida will probably not get a direct hit, they will have lots of flooding and problems with long term winds, rain, and the King high tides that occur several times a year. Beyond that there is ANOTHER wave that just came off of Africa, and someone confided it will be worse thatn Dorian. EVERYBODY needs to pay attention and watch this storm Abaca where it hit today had SUSTAINED winds of 185 miles per hour and gusts over 220! The storm surge 18-23 feet, and 26.87 inches of rain. Now all of that will not be heading to our coastline but what is coming is bad enough.

Good morning America said Walmart did an analytics survey and before hurricanes the things people stock up on last minute are beer, water, flashlights and Strawberry frosted Pop Tarts. Apparently that is what's important to America.
