There are two keys to weather safety. They are to be prepared for worst and to act accordingly.

  1. First things first, you should build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.
  2. Be familiar with your environment and surroundings.
  3. Learn about whether or not your property is flood-prone.
  4. Identify dams and flood zones in the surrounding area.
  5. Learn community hurricane evacuation routes and how to find higher ground.
  6. Have a plan to secure your property
  7. Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed so they are more wind resistant.
  8. Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
  9. Plan to bring in all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down.
  10. Determine how and where to secure your outdoor vehicles.
  11. Install a generator for emergencies.
  12. If in a high-rise building, when high winds are present, be prepared to take shelter on a lower floor because wind conditions increase with height, and in a small interior room without windows.
  13. Consider building a safe room.
