Thunderstorms can be more dangerous than you think!  They happen often and can cause a lot of damage to your home.  Of course, there are ways to help prevent this.  To prepare for a Thunderstorm, you should do the following:

  • You should build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.
  • Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage.
  • Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  • Get inside a home, building, or hard top automobile (not a convertible).
  • Shutter windows and secure outside doors.  If shutter are not available, close windows blinds, shades or curtains.
  • Unplug any electronic equipment well before the storm arrives.
