What type of coverage do you need?

Any kind of storm—a hurricane, a blizzard, a severe thunderstorm—is scary. And the fear is realistic, considering the damage your home and your loved ones could suffer. Here’s how to stay safe when the weather outside is truly frightful:

  • Prepare your home. Keep some basic necessities handy: flashlights and candles, a battery-powered radio, extra food and water, and first-aid supplies.
  • Check your windows. Make sure your windows shut securely. Close your shutters if you have them. Board your windows if you expect high winds, or tape them in an X shape to reinforce the glass. Leave windows slightly ajar as long as they won’t flap and shatter.
  • Pick a secure location. The basement is a common refuge, but be aware that you may be closer to gas and sewer lines than you want to be. If you don’t have a basement, go to the lowest level of your house and pick an area with as many walls as possible between you and the outside.
  • Stay inside. Once the storm hits, leaving your house can be extremely dangerous. Make sure all your pets are inside, and wait until the storm passes before venturing out.
  • Clean up. When the storm is over, carefully check your house for damage. Dispose of anything that’s soaked up water and can’t be dried and cleaned. Look for water leaks, and use fans and dehumidifers to remove moisture. Check for mold and clean it up as soon as you can. If you smell gas, leave your house and call 911 immediately.
