Farmers also offers the following tips to consider to help residents prepare:
- Make a plan: Prepare an emergency kit and make a communication plan. Creating a family communication plan is helpful for knowing where you will take shelter, how you will use escape routes from your home and neighborhood, where your emergency meeting place will be and deciding how you will communicate with one another if separated.
- Don't wait – evacuate: If instructed to or considering evacuation, act quickly. Flooding is likely during a hurricane and potential evacuation routes could be affected.
- Unplug: Unplug devices and appliances like TVs, computers, microwaves and stoves. Widespread power outages are possible and can last weeks. As the storm passes, power surges could cause serious damage to your electronics.
- Try to save the food: Unless advised to turn off utilities by local authorities, keep the refrigerator plugged in and on the lowest temperature setting possible to help prevent food loss if there is a power outage. If evacuating, and if you have time, it's a good idea to take everything out and move it to the evacuation location.
- Utilities: If ordered to do so, or planning to evacuate, turn off the utilities (water, gas and electricity).
- Don't go outside: Stay indoors, away from windows and glass doors while the storm passes. Close all internal doors and lock external doors. According to IBHS (Institute for Business and Home Safety), during the height of the storm seek shelter in an interior room, closet or hallway on the lowest level of the home. If in a high-rise, seek shelter below the 10th floor of the building.
- Plan ahead for pets: Create an emergency kit for pets, including a leash, 2-3 weeks supply of food, water and litter, medication or prescription refills, and bedding or toys to help keep them calm.
