Prepare for High Winds:

  • If necessary, protect all windows with shutters or 5/8 inch plywood panels.
  • Reinforce garage doors.
  •  Designate an interior room with no windows or external doors as a “safe room.”
  • Assess your landscaping and trees to ensure they do not become a wind hazard.
  • Prepare for Flooding
  • When you hear hurricane, think inland flooding.
  • Determine the elevation of your property to learn your vulnerability to flooding.
  • In flood-prone areas, keep on hand materials such as sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting, plastic garbage bags, lumber, shovels, work boots and gloves.
  • Be aware of areas known to flood so your evacuation routes are not cut off.

As the Storm Approaches:

  • Most mobile/manufactured homes are not built to withstand hurricane-force winds. Residents of these homes should relocate to a safer structure when an evacuation order is issued.
  • Secure lawn furniture and other outside objects that could become projectiles in high winds.
  • Listen carefully for safety instructions from local officials. Monitor NOAA weather radio.
  • During the Storm
  •  Stay inside and away from windows, skylights and doors.
  •  Listen to a battery-powered radio for storm updates.
  • Have flashlights/batteries handy and avoid open flames and candles.
  • If power is lost, turn off major appliances to reduce damage when power is restored.

After the Storm

  • Stay away from downed or dangling power lines.
  • Beware of weakened tree limbs.
  • Open windows and doors to ventilate your house.
  • Use your phone only in emergencies.
  • Do not drive into water of unknown depth.
  • Restrict children from playing in flooded areas.
  • Do not use fresh food that has come in contact with flood waters.
  • Wells should be pumped out and the water tested before drinking. ​
