Before the Storm

Before the Storm

  • Listen to weather updates on local stations
  • Check your Disaster Supply Kit. Obtain any needed or out-dated items.

  • Fill you cars/trucks gas tank and check oil, water and tires.
  • Fill additional gas cans for your generators

  • Clear yard of potential flying debris (lawn furniture, potted plants, bicycles, trash cans, etc)
  • Have charcoal and wooden matches for charcoal grills, propane for gas grills
  • Leave as soon as you can. Do not get on congested evacuation routes and try to outrun the storm.


If you evacuate:

  • Listen to your local radio and television stations for emergency broadcasts. If ordered to evacuate, you must do so immediately.
  • Take your Disaster Supply Kit
  • Take important papers with you, including your driver’s license, special medical information, insurance policies and property inventories
  • Let relatives, friends and/or neighbors know where you are going.
  • Turn off electricity, water and gas

If you can safely stay home:

  • Make sure your windows are protected and home is secured.
  • Offer your home as shelter to relatives or friends who live in vulnerable areas or mobile homes
  • Clean containers for drinking water and you bathtub for storing clean water. Remember: 3 gallons per persons per day for all uses.
    • Line the tub with plastic sheeting or clean shower curtains
    • Caulk the drain with silicone caulking (it will hold water for weeks and cleans up easily when dry)
  • Check your Disaster Supply Kit. Obtain any needed or out-dated items.
  • Don’t forget to have a non-electric can opener.
  • During the storm, stay inside and away from windows, skylights and glass doors. Find a safe area of your home (interior reinforced room, closet or bathroom on the lower floor)
  • Wait for the official word that the danger is over. Don’t be fooled by the storm’s calm “eye”.
  • If you lose power, turn off major appliances (air conditioner, water heater, computers, all TV, etc) to reduce damage
