After living at Ground Zero for Charlie here is what I can quickly advise:
GAS for your vehicle. Get it now. Power goes out... no gas
CASH: no power, no banks or ATM's
Water: load up on it if possible. When you think you have enough, double or even triple the amount! (filling the tub is a good idea also. That's a great backup supply.
Zip lock bags: get the big ones for important papers, medications, etc...
ID: ALWAYS have at least 1 form of identification on you at all times. If it gets bad enough to evacuate, they probably won't let you back into severely damaged areas without a minimum of 1. For PT. Charlotte and Punta Gorda areas, after Charlie, you had to have 1 ID and at least one piece of mail, preferably a utility bill.
Video / Photograph everything NOW. Try to get serial numbers etc... If possible.
As more things pop into my head I will post them for you all. Some of this may seem to be overkill, but DON'T wait until the storm is an hour away and go ' Oh Crap ' !
And if you even think you may have to evacuate, don't wait until the last minute to do so. Roads get real packed and no one ends up anywhere
