'I'm from California so I'm used to being prepared for things like earthquakes,' said Held. 'But hurricanes give you too much time to think,' added Held. Officials at the store explained that their stock of flashlights, among other essentials, had sold out by close of business on Saturday evening, but signs posted around the store notified shoppers that more emergency supplies are due to arrive on Monday.
