Preparation Tips

To prepare for these possible strong storms, take some time to prepare your home and family by:

  • Bringing items in that could be blown around in strong gusts such as potted plants, lawn furniture and children’s toys
  • Secure boats and trailers by covering or bringing them inside garages Install or activate hurricane shutters to protect windows from possible flying debris
  • Have at least 3 days worth of food and supplies should power be interrupted
  • Have 3 days of water for each person (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Fill up vehicles with fuel
  • Have cash on hand
  • Have a first aid kit available
  • Medication supply for those on maintenance medication
  • Stay away from flooded roads and standing water
  • Don’t forget your pets – they need preparation too.
    • Have enough food and water (1 gallon per pet per day) for three days.
    • Include clean bedding and blankets to help keep them comfortable.
    • For many, strong thunderstorms can be frightening and those pets that suffer from storm anxiety may have a difficult time with a lengthy weather event.
    • Speak to your vet for medication that may help to keep them calm if needed.
