Tips to Prepare for Severe Weather

Severe weather can come with a warning or it can strike unexpectedly. The choice between repairing the damages caused by a storm and preventing those damages in the first place is easy. You are likely going to go with the latter. An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. With this in mind, your friends at Mr. Electric of Katy have put together this short article to share some tips to prepare for severe weather. We are also at your service when you need electrical repairs, replacements, and installations. We are happy to schedule you an appointment or arrange an emergency dispatch today.

Know Your Area’s Climate

Get familiar with your environment. Is your area prone to hurricanes, tornados, torrential rainfall, or thunderstorms? Understanding the risks will help you prepare for the unexpected. For example, if the area is susceptible to flooding, for example, then you should establish and maintain drainage systems. If tornados and severe hurricanes are common, then know where the evacuation routes and nearby shelters are located. Of course, you should also keep up with the weather forecast so that you can prepare more specifically.

Some Tips to Prepare You for Severe Weather

First and foremost, you want to make sure your home is safe. Note the points of weakness in your home and fortify those areas. If you expect high winds, then consider barricades for the doors and shutters for the windows. Ensure your roof is sturdy and trim large, overhanging tree branches. If you expect flooding, then install or inspect the sump pump as well as the drainage system. Unclog any gutters and downspouts.

Next, prepare your emergency kit. It can be easy to forget items if you are rushing to buy things the day before a storm hits, so prepare your kit far ahead of time. Stock up on food, water, first aid items, medication, blankets, flashlights, batteries, tools, and a whistle. Consider a sturdy safe to protect important documents. If you want to enjoy a sense of comfort during a severe storm, then consider installing a backup generator and whole-house surge protector. Mr. Electric of Katy is happy to help.

Finally, create and practice your safety plan with your family. It is important to stay calm and organized during potentially chaotic times such as a storm, so make sure everyone knows what to expect. Take some time to discuss the incoming severe weather, create a safety plan, and run practice drills. This can help you keep everyone together and let everyone know where to regroup in case of separation.
