If you’re at home during a hurricane, the main thing you need to do is keep yourself, your family, and your pets safe. If you live in a mandatory evacuation zone and local officials tell you to leave your home, do so immediately and head to a safer area. If you are in an area where local officials encourage residents to evacuate, you should follow their recommendation and evacuate to a safer location. If you are not in an area where you are required or encouraged to evacuate, you could still be in danger from storm conditions if you don’t take precautions appropriate for the strength and trajectory of the storm. Below are some important tips to help stay safer while the storm affects your area.
Keep up to date on what’s going on outside.
Brave the storm by hunkering down.
Protect yourself and your loved ones.
