How to Prepare for a Winter Storm
Winter is here and so too could snow, ice or a combination of both. Winter storms can produce blizzards, freezing rain, sleet and high winds. To be prepared for such weather, it is important to consider the following before the Winter Storm Warning has been issued. Have emergency supplies ready – including food and water in case you get stuck in your house and need to survive without power; flashlights and extra batteries; portable radio to access important weather updates; plenty of warm clothes including blankets; a first aid kit that includes any medications you may need; mobile phone charger; ice-scraper/snow shovel and plenty of winter fuel such as firewood or coal.
Additionally, prepare the exterior of your home by removing debris from gutters, clearing away leaves from drains, ensuring window screens are firmly fixed and trimming back overhanging branches that could come down with heavy snowfall or wind.
What to Do if You Lose Power or Heat During a Winter Storm
Winter storms can bring high winds, heavy snowfall, and freezing temperatures, potentially leading to power outages and loss of heat. If you find yourself in this situation, there are a few steps you can take to stay safe. First, if you have a Winter Storm Warning, make sure to stay indoors and away from windows to avoid being injured by flying debris. If the power goes out, unplug any appliances to prevent them from drawing power when it is restored. You should also open your fridge and freezer doors only when absolutely necessary to preserve food. And finally, if you lose heat, dress in layers and try to huddle together with other people in your home for warmth. By following these steps, you can stay safe until the storm passes and help minimize any damage to your property.
