3 Thunderstorm Safety Tips

If you check out the Red Cross’ website, you’ll find full lists of safety tips for before, during, and after thunderstorms. In this blog, we’d like to highlight three of their tips that can help prevent storm damage. Firstly, because objects outside can be raised off of the ground by strong winds and function as projectiles, it is beneficial to devise a list of outdoor objects that can be brought inside before a thunderstorm. In order to protect your home from flying debris, make sure that your property’s doors and windows are sealed shut before the storm. Installing storm shutters over windows can also be helpful in avoiding unwanted damage. The final tip is to make an attempt to cut back tree branches and shrubbery before thunderstorms roll through your area this spring. Doing so can prevent branches from falling and coming into contact with your residence.
