Prepare your home for Storms
Spring is known for its rapidly changing weather — and that can mean severe storms. Help get your home and family ready with these tips.
Stow your gear. When strong winds are forecast, secure patio furniture and other yard items or put them in your garage or a shed so they don't become dangerous projectiles.
Cover up. Close and secure storm shutters if your home has them. Keep blinds and shades drawn and tape or tack window coverings around the edges to help protect you from broken, flying glass. Tie thick blankets over vehicles that are exposed to the elements to diminish damage from hail.
If power outages are common in your area, prepare an emergency kit and keep it in a central location in your home.
Basic supplies should include:
- Flashlight and fresh batteries
- Battery or solar-powered weather radio and/or transistor radio
- First aid supplies
- Hand sanitizer or wipes
- Three-day supply of canned or dried food and water
