Put the kennel/crate together as a trial, then store and transport disassembled.
Allow your pet to become familiar with the kennel/crate at home before a disaster.
Use a blanket to partially cover the kennel/crate during the height of the storm for added security.
Plastic grocery bags make pet clean up easier.
Dry pet food is easier to transport and use than canned food during a disaster.
Consider micro-chips for your pet before a storm
