Preparing for a Thunderstorm

7/20/2021 (Permalink)

Thunderstorms can be more dangerous than you think! They happen often and can cause a lot of damage to your home. Of course, there are ways to help prevent this. 

To prepare for a Thunderstorm, you should do the following:

  • You should build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan. In order, to prevent any chaos. 
  • Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage.
  • Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  • Get inside a home, building, or hard top automobile so you are safe (not a convertible).
  • Shutter windows and secure outside doors so they do not swing open and to avoid rain from coming in. If shutters are not available, close window blinds, shades or curtains.
  • Unplug any electronic equipment well before the storm arrives.
  • Last but not least act smart. Thunder storms can be dangerous. 

    Here are some facts about Thunderstorms!

    • They may occur singly, in clusters or in lines.
    • Some of the most severe occur when a single Thunderstorm affects one location for an extended time.
    • Warm, humid conditions are highly favorable for Thunderstorm development.
