How to Protect your Home During a Hurricane
Once your accordion shutters have been installed, there are a few additional measures you can take to prepare for an approaching hurricane, including:
Secure Outdoor Items: If you have outdoor furniture, grills, plants, etc., bring them indoors or ensure that that are properly secured to prevent them from becoming projectiles in high winds.
Trim Trees and Shrubs: As we have seen from previous hurricanes, hurricane strength winds can cause a great deal of damage to tree and shrubs. By trimming the trees and shrubs around your home, you can greatly minimize the risk of branches breaking off and causing damage during a storm.
Create a Hurricane Kit: Prepare a hurricane kit with essential supplies, including non-perishable food, water, flashlights, batteries, first-aid supplies, and important documents.
Stay Informed: Pay attention to weather forecasts and updates from local authorities. Follow their instructions regarding evacuation orders and other safety measures.
