What to Do During a Hurricane?

  • Use a portable radio to listen to important storm updates, information and instructions.
  • Stay inside and keep away from all windows, skylights and glass doors.
  • Never go outside the protection of your home or shelter before there is confirmation that the storm has passed the area.

Where is a good place to hide during a hurricane?

Stay away from doors and windows, even if they’re boarded up, and make your way to a windowless room in the lowest part of the house. It could be a basement, a bathroom, a closet, or even a hallway. If possible, lie on the floor under a table or sturdy object during the more violent parts of the storm.

Should you close all your interior doors during a hurricane?

Stay indoors during the hurricane and away from windows and glass doors. Close all interior doors – secure and brace external doors. Keep curtains and blinds closed. Do not be fooled if there is a lull; it could be the eye of the storm – winds will pick up again.

Why you shouldn’t tape your windows during a hurricane?

But the truth is that damage from hurricane-force winds is the one problem duct tape CAN’T fix. The idea was that tape could help brace windows against the effects of winds, or at the very least prevent them from shattering into a million tiny pieces. In reality, taping does nothing to strengthen windows.
