Prepare for Storms

Lightning in a dark sky. Storms can be dangerous weather events that leave destruction to your property as well as cause injuries.

Storms can be dangerous weather events that leave destruction to your property as well as cause injuries. Below is a checklist to make sure your home and family are best prepared for any storms, so that you, your loved ones, and your home can stay safe.  

  • Prepare a storm shelter. Include essential supplies such as food, water, a first aid kid, flashlights, and batteries to last a few days in the case of a severe storm or tornado.  
  • Clear branches and dead trees around your home. The high-speed wind of storms can send dead branches or even trees crashing through your windows, siding, and roof. Clearing these objects away from your house is an easy way to make sure they do not cause any damage.  
  • Secure outside objects.  If a bad storm is coming up, move large outdoor objects inside to prevent damage to your house and those objects.  
  • Document your valuable items. Take pictures of valuable items that you can use to show to your insurance provider. If they are damaged or lost in the storm, you have better luck with your claim if you have documentation. Include date of purchase and purchase amount if you have that as well. Bonus points for saving receipts!  
  • Protect your pets. When preparing for storms, pets’ needs can be forgotten about. Make sure to have a plan in place for your pets, whether that is in your storm shelter or if that means having them in a separate safe location for when the storm hits.
