During a Hurricane

If you are have not evacuated, go to your safe room. If you do not have a safe room, follow these guidelines:

  • Stay indoors and away from windows and glass doors.
  • Close all interior doors—secure and brace external doors.
  • Keep curtains and blinds closed. Do not be fooled if there is a lull; it could be the eye of the storm—winds will pick up again.
  • Take refuge in a small interior room, closet, or hallway on the lowest level.
  • Lie on the floor under a table or another sturdy object.  

After a Hurricane

Recovering from a disaster is usually a gradual process. Safety is a primary issue, as are mental and physical well-being.

  • Let your friends and family know that you are safe.
  • Do not return home unless authorized to avoid electrical hazards and other dangers.
  • Do NOT drink tap water unless authorized to do so.
  • Check the temperature in your fridge or freezer. Anything that has remained at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder is safe to eat. Otherwise, throw it out to be safe.
  • Also, throw away ANY food that has come in contact with flood waters which may carry waterborne diseases, chemicals, etc. Better safe than sorry.
  • Document any damage with photos and contact your insurance company.
  • In your home, immediately remove or air out water-damaged items. It’s critical to minimize the chance of mold growing in your home.
  • Do NOT drive or walk through floodwaters which may be electrically-charged and filled with contaminants; just six inches of moving flood water will knock a grown man down. Do NOT underestimate the power of moving waters.
