As to the tornado question, usually small fast moving tornadoes. They can do a lot of damage in the Cat 3+ storms. The upper right quadren (sp???) is usually where they are located in "the dirty side" of a hurricane.
Miami Beach is Actually a Cat 2 Evacuation Zone

Just bought a plug for our bathtub so we will have lots of 'flushing' water. Already had the 5 gallon jugs for drinking water and a months worth of canned foods.

They make a Huge deal about disaster readiness here in Hawaii tho we hardly ever have disasters. Big Island just got 'nicked' a bit but mostly we need to be ready to lose electric service. It is old overhead lines easily downed by tree falls and high winds.

In many ways we are amazingly 'third world' for being part of the USA.

To prepare for the hurricane, the most important thing is to stock-up the food and water. And second important thing is to leave the red zone areas, when the authorities ask to evacuate. People usually refuse to evacuate when authorities ask them to relocate temporarily, which most of the times cause loss of lives. It is difficult to evacuate and leave home but it is suicide in some causes. In the hurricane Mathew which recently hit the UK. Many people refused to evacuate and it caused great amount of complications for the authorities.
