Lynn Haven neighbors got hurricane-ready by getting sandbags, signing up for Bay alerts, and getting their pets shots and micro-chipped.

City officials say you never know what could happen, and you should always be prepared.

"We're all a family here, so we want to make sure our family, our Lynn Haven family especially, is protected during all of this time," said Kathryn Gay, Marketing and Communications for the City of Lynn Haven.

Micro-chipping pets is important, according to city officials, because it can help you get your pet back faster if they lose their tag, in the event of a hurricane.
