Preparation for a Storm

11/21/2016 (Permalink)

With technology today, we can usually predict when a large storm is going to hit. Here are some helpful tips to prepare you and your loved ones for a storm.

  1. Tune into your local weather radio station, TV channel, or app.
  1. Depending on the type of storm, you must evaluate your situation.
  • Your location matters. You need to find a safe place that offers shelter.

  1. Create an emergency plan.
  • Know where you are going (locate fast exit points or where to stay)

  • Memorize emergency phone numbers

  1. Prepare an emergency kit. Each kit should include:
  • Flashlights

  • Batteries

  • Non perishable foods

  • Water bottles

  • Blankets

  • First Aid Kit (essential medications)

  1. Prepare your home.
  • Make sure your insurance is adequate

  • Learn how to safely turn off your power, gas, and water

  • Remove tree branches or other dangers close to your home

  • Check your roof and gutters clear

How Outside Can Affect You

Outside Conditions

Most damage to a property during severe weather occurs when limbs or trees fall. High winds and saturated soil conditions typical of summer storms can cause tree roots to fail and branches to weaken. During winter, the weight of ice and snow accumulation can be equally damaging, resulting in failure of branches and entire trees. None of this is any easy experience for a homeowner. That is why pre-storm strategies are recommended to identify potentially hazardous conditions and to help reduce the risk of damage before harsh weather occurs.

How to Prepare

In many cases, cutting tree branches that can fall onto the house can be a very effective method. Cutting trees down is another option and highly recommended if the tree looks old and dead.

After a Storm

After a storm there could be several after effects. There could be a flooded basement, ripped off shingles, or even one of these trees that wasn't properly taken care of could have fallen on your house.  If any of these cases have occurred, SERVPRO Columbia Greene can come in and make it "like it never even happened."
