In brief: Protect windows

Close your windows, doors, and hurricane shutters.
If you do not have shutters, close and board up all windows and doors with plywood. Turn your refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting so that food will last longer if the power goes out. Turn off propane tank. Unplug small appliances.
