Prepare Today for Summer Storms
Summer weather can be brutal. Your location -- or locations if you're moving -- will determine what you need to prepare for. Almost everyone needs to prepare for the possibility of flooding, as even dry, desert areas can get summer storms that the ground just can't handle. Remember, just an inch of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars' worth of damage.
Late spring and summer can also bring tornados to your area. Did you know tornados are more common in the U.S. than in any other country? No matter where you live, take some time today to make a tornado plan.
- Find a safe place to shelter. If you have a basement or storm cellar, head there. If not, find an internal room -- no windows -- on the lowest level of your house.
- Know what to look for. Tornados come from hot and windy weather, and you'll often see a very dark or green-colored sky. And the sound is like a roaring train.
- Have a bag prepared. Take the time to put together a bag of some clothes, food, medicine, first aid kits, etc. Then you can take that with you if you need to leave your home or be prepared if the power goes out after a storm.
Tornados move quickly and with little to no warning. Consider this your warning and take steps to prepare your home, your family and your property for potential summer storms.
