RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Tuesday, Sept. 18 marks the ninth anniversary of Hurricane Isabel hitting Virginia.

Reggie Gordon from the Greater Richmond Red Cross came to the studio to talk about being prepared for another hurricane to hit.

Gordon says that planning for two weeks without power, running water, and supplies is very important. Every person needs about a gallon of water every day. Food, flashlights, radios, and pet food for any animals you own is good to have stored in case any natural disasters strike.
