Check your caulking

Check the caulking around your windows and doors to make sure that it isn’t cracked or chipped. If you notice any cracks or chips the caulking needs to be replaced.

Look for dead branches

Look in your backyard and front yard for any trees that might have dead branches that might fall and potentially cause damage in windy conditions.

Check your gutters

Check the gutters and drains in your home for branches, leaves and other debris. Overflowing water is a common problem and could be easily prevented by regularly cleaning your gutters and drains.

Lower pool water

If you have a pool lower the water to help prevent it from overflowing, the chlorine in the water can cause damage to your grass.

Turn off automated sprinklers

If you have an automated sprinkler system remember to turn it off when rain is expected.

Secure loose furniture

If you have any furniture outside, like garbage cans or patio furniture make sure that it is secured and can’t be blown by the wind.

Prepare a first aid kit

Have a first aid kit ready and prepared in case the worst happens, make sure you also have a flashlight and spare batteries in an easy to access area.

Know how to turn off the electricity
