- Make sure shed doors are closed tightly: otherwise, they could end up blowing off their hinges and becoming dangerous projectiles.
- Bring in flags, awnings and house ornaments. (wreaths)
- Don't leave cars parked under trees (especially if you may be in the car when the storm strikes!).
- Check pool covers to ensure that they are secure.
- Be alert for Tornadoes.
- Storm surge flooding. These high waves can be more deadly than hurricane winds. Leave the coast and stay away from low-lying areas.
- Do not use candles during the storm, stick with battery operated flashlights.
