Hurricane and tropical storms bring major wind forces, that can threaten you and your family and cause serious damage to your house or condo. However, Hercules Roofing – the leading Boca Raton Roofer – has some planning tips to keep you and your loved ones safe during a hurricane.
- Get Prepared: If you haven’t already, you should create a hurricane emergency kit (click here for the government’s recommendations) and take steps not only to create the emergency kit, but also to explain it to your family.
- Stay Updated: It’s important to stay up-to-date on the impending weather conditions. Make sure you have a battery-powered – or better yet, one that can also be charged by hand crank – radio with fresh batteries. The news stations will keep you apprised before and after a storm.
- Evacuate, If Necessary: If your home is in the direct path of the storm or hurricane and authorities are recommending evacuation, don’t wait: go. It’s simply not worth risking personal physical danger to stay with your possessions.
- Have A Return Home Plan: If you’ve evacuated, make sure you get the all clear from the authorities before returning. And be forewarned, if your house has been severely damaged, you will need to know where the local shelters are and where to get the basic necessities.
