I live in Coastal NC, Hurricanes are part of our life each year, even if we are not a direct hit. I know this sounds small but one suggestion I have learned from experience is, "Cut Your Grass" before the storm. Why? If you have ever had to drag tree limbs thru tall grass once you will understand. Also not only that, with tall grass and high humidity comes the hungry mosquito. Mosquito like tall grass.

Before hand freeze some bottles or milk jugs for ice blocks. We had our power out for 2 weeks one time and it was nice to have a couple of coolers with ice.

Propane tanks for your grill. Life saver.

Everything else is pick up stuff that might blow away, batten down the hatches and stay sober just in case.
