Brace yourself for wind or hail

If there’s a storm brewing, keep up with its progress through local news or weather channels. If you are told to evacuate or take cover, do it!

Protect yourself by taking these steps:

  • Secure all glass openings (windows, sun roof) to limit additional damages
  • Make sure outdoor furniture and fixtures and all vehicles are brought in to prevent them from being damage
  • Stay away from glass windows and doors and seek refuge in an interior room with no windows
  • Avoid using electrical appliances
  • Take care of your pets: A storm can be a frightening experience, and they could injure themselves or injure you if panicked
  • Do not light candles or lanterns – they could get blown over causing a fire
  • Never go out during the storm – flying debris can cause severe injuries
  • After the storm clears, and you come out, beware of downed power lines and gas leaks
  • Stay away from heavily damaged areas. Listen to your radio for instructions
