Severe weather of any kind is a frightening thing. Serious rain, lightning strikes, hail and heavy wind all make an environment that is not simply frightening, but is also rather dangerous. Because of all the harm that severe weather can bring, anyone who may be caught in its path is wise to prepare.

 If severe weather becomes possible in your neighborhood, it is important to act quickly to make sure you are ready. While we can’t fully predict the weather and definitely can’t control it, there are some key ways that you can lessen the impact it is likely to have. 

Below, we have our top tips for severe weather preparation you should note to keep yourself and your household safer.

How to Prepare if Severe Weather Is Possible

 Make sure to have a reliable source for weather alerts

 Staying informed is so important when it comes to severe weather, especially when conditions could change on short notice. It is important to be certain you have multiple ways to get weather alerts (typically a cell phone and an NOAA weather radio) so you can stay informed about changing conditions and have a backup method in case you lose cell service.

Have an emergency kit packed 

If there is a severe storm in the area, you and your family members may need to shelter in a safe space until the event passes. To make this a comfortable experience and ensure no one needs to exit the designated safety area, it is wise to pack a storm emergency kit with necessities such as flashlights, water, prepackaged foods and anything else you may need to stay comfortable. 

Prevent damage to your home

Storm damage can cause serious problems around the house, and while it can never be fully prevented, you can lessen its likelihood. Trimming back tree branches, tying down objects that are likely to become projectiles in heavy winds and clearing out your gutters are all smart steps to take to lessen the likelihood of experiencing damage due to severe weather around your home.
