High Wind Preparedness Tips

  • Secure garbage cans, lawn furniture or anything that could become airborne and cause damage.
  • Clean out gutters and storm drains to keep drains clear of trash, leaves and branches so rainwater can easily flow, reducing possible flooding and ponding.
  • Rake leaves to cut down on flying debris and prevent clogged storm drains.
  • Stock up your emergency supply kit. Heavy winds can often lead to power outages, sometimes for days at a time.
