Preparing Your Home and Family for a Hurricane

Preparing Your House for a Hurricane

Secure Loose Items: Trim trees, secure outdoor furniture, and remove any potential projectiles that could cause damage during strong winds.

Inspect Your Roof: Ensure your roof is in good condition and fix any loose or damaged shingles. Reinforce the roof if necessary.

Seal Windows and Doors: Reinforce windows with storm shutters or board them up with plywood. Seal doors with weatherstripping to prevent water infiltration.

Clear Gutters and Drains: Remove debris from gutters and drains to prevent clogging and flooding.

Backup Power: Consider investing in a generator to keep essential appliances running during power outages.

Staying Safe During a Hurricane

Create an Emergency Kit: Pack a kit with essential items such as non-perishable food, water, medications, flashlights, batteries, and important documents.

Stay Indoors: Once the hurricane hits, stay indoors. Going outside can put you at risk from flying debris and strong winds.

Stay Informed: Keep a battery-powered radio or access to emergency alerts to stay updated on the storm’s progress.

Avoid Flooded Areas: Don’t walk, swim, or drive through floodwaters, as they can be deeper and more dangerous than they appear.

Have a Communication Plan: Ensure you have a way to communicate with family members in case you get separated. Use text messages instead of calls, as they use less bandwidth.

Will Long Beach be Affected by Hurricane Hilary?
