  • Closely monitor Radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio for hurricane updates and emergency information.
  • Unplug small appliances and turn off propane tanks.
  • Remain indoors in an interior hallway, bathroom or closet on the lowest level of your house well away from any windows.
  • Close all interior doors and secure and brace external doors.
  • Do not be fooled by the eye of the hurricane and its temporary period of peaceful weather conditions. The length of time within the eye varies from several minutes to a couple hours, depending on the size of the storm.
  • Stay away from windows and glass doors. You could be struck by flying debris.
