Hurricane Preparedness Week
Hurricane Preparedness Week runs May 9 through 15. This is a designated time to prepare for the potential of a tropical storm or hurricane. Now is the time to ensure your home is secure against storm damage.
Follow these three basic steps to minimize the risk of a property damage:
- Repair gutters and clear them of debris. Any method to divert heavy rain from your property will help, like French Drains.
- Make sure you have a method in place to secure your property’s windows and doors. Check storm shutters if you have them. Be sure you have enough plywood to secure your windows if you opt for that method.
- Determine where you will stow all outdoors items like furniture, that could become a damaging projectile. If you cannot move them indoors, have a way to secure them. Bungee cords and tarps will come in handy.
