Despite advances in meteorology and weather measurement technology, weather is something that remains uncertain. It is impossible to know when severe weather will strike or how much damage it will cause when it does, but one constant is this: It is vital to be prepared before it strikes.

Having a severe weather plan in place is one of the best ways to protect your household from its effects. From mitigating property damage to keeping everyone safe when the incident occurs, knowing what your plan is will be vital, especially if you are in a situation with only moments to respond.

If you are new to planning for severe weather, or if it has been a long time since you have visited your plan, keep reading for our top tips.

Considering Your Household’s Plan for Severe Weather

| Make sure to have a reliable way to receive updates - Because weather can change rapidly, it is important to stay informed when it becomes a threat so you can make educated decisions about the situation. Being sure you have a reliable way to receive updates, and that you understand the difference between watches and warnings, can help you be aware of the situational threats your household faces.

| Have a spot to shelter in the home - Designating your shelter spot in advance will ensure that you and members of your household can get to it quickly when severe weather threatens your area. An area on the lowest level of the home that does not have windows or external walls is best. Be sure to think this through carefully, and communicate to your family members where they should head in the event of severe weather.

| Make sure you have an emergency kit - Because severe weather can often threaten power supplies and other vital services, a well-stocked emergency kit is a wise choice. Water, shelf-stable food items, first-aid supplies and flashlights (plus batteries) are must-haves, but also consider specific needs that members in your household have that may influence what your emergency kit should have.
