Severe Weather Tips 

   When severe weather is approaching there may not be enough time to properly prepare your family and your property.  It is always a good idea to know what to do and when to do it.  In most cases locally; severe weather strikes in the form of thunderstorms with the potential for wind, thunder and lightning and heavy rain.  There are a few steps that each household should take to prepare for such events.

  • Secure your property and keep trees trimmed and remove dead branches and store any outdoor furniture or items safely. Branches, lawn chairs and garbage cans can quickly become projectiles in a severe storm and cause damage to your home, vehicles and property.  
  • Keeping your gutters and drainpipes clean will help to properly direct the flow of potentially damaging flood waters away from your home and crawlspace.
  • Check the condition of your roof. If repairs are needed; apply them before the bad weather strikes.
  • Prepare an emergency safety plan for your family and include methods of communication and an escape route to a safe meeting place.
  • Keep an eye on the sky and pay attention to local weather information.
  • If severe weather threatens; check on the elderly, disabled, the very young and pets and farm animals.

NOTE: ACCORDING TO NOAA – IF YOU ARE AWARE OF WHAT WEATHER EVENT IS ABOUT TO IMPACT YOU – YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO SURVIVE SUCH AN EVENT.  NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR THEIR WEBSITE IS THE BEST SOURCE FOR ACCURATE WEATHER INFORMATION.
