What to do after a Storm
Stay Safe After a Hurricane/ Tropical Storm
Prioritize your safety. Turn around, don’t drown is proper guidance. Over 50% of storm related deaths are people trapped in their cars. Stay out of the storm water.
Check in on your elderly neighbors.
Use flashlights instead of candles if you have no power.
Be careful near damaged buildings.
Stay away from any downed power lines.
Watch out for any stray animals and pests.
If you have any damage, take a lot of pictures and call your insurance company.
Prevent any further damage. Tarp off openings, drain water when possible/safe.
After things settle down, if you need a third party assessment, call your local home inspector and schedule an inspection.
