Here are essential tips to secure your home and get ready for the hurricane season.

Understanding Hurricane Season

Hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th, with the peak occurring from mid-August to late October. During this period, it’s crucial to stay informed about weather updates and warnings. Proper preparation can make a significant difference in protecting your home and loved ones.

Secure Your Home

  1. Reinforce Windows and Doors
    • Install storm shutters or use plywood to board up windows.
    • Ensure all doors, including garage doors, are sturdy and can withstand strong winds. Consider installing hurricane-proof doors.
  2. Inspect Your Roof
    • Check for loose or damaged shingles and repair them.
    • Clean out gutters and downspouts to prevent water accumulation and roof damage.
  3. Trim Trees and Shrubs
    • Regularly trim trees and shrubs around your property to reduce the risk of debris during a storm.
    • Remove dead or weak branches that could become projectiles in high winds.
  4. Secure Outdoor Items
    • Bring in outdoor furniture, decorations, and any items that can be easily blown away.
    • Anchor larger objects like sheds, boats, and trailers securely to the ground.

Prepare an Emergency Kit

Having a well-stocked emergency kit is essential. Include the following items:

  • Non-perishable food and water (enough for at least three days)
  • Medications and medical supplies
  • Flashlights, batteries, and a weather radio
  • Important documents (stored in a waterproof container)
  • First aid kit and hygiene products
  • Tools and supplies for securing your home
