If you are under a hurricane watch or warning, here are some basic steps to take to prepare for the storm:

  • Learn about your community's emergency plans, warning signals, evacuation routes, and locations of emergency shelters.
  • Identify potential home hazards and know how to secure or protect them before the hurricane strikes.
  • Be prepared to turn off electrical power when there is standing water, fallen power lines, or before you evacuate.
  • Turn off gas and water supplies before you evacuate.
  • Secure structurally unstable building materials.
  • Buy a fire extinguisher and make sure your family knows where to find it and how to use it.
  • Locate and secure your important papers, such as insurance policies, wills, licenses, stocks, etc.
  • Post emergency phone numbers at every phone.
