During Severe weather:
Stay indoors and away from windows and glassed areas.
Listen to weather bulletins and official reports with a battery powered radio.
Track the storm; a lull in the wind is not an indication that a storm has passed.
Be alert for rising water.
Turn off major appliances, especially air conditioners, but do not disconnect refrigeration or freezers. Turn their controls to the coldest setting and keep doors closed to preserve food as long as possible.
Keep away from fallen wires - Report any downed power lines or broken gas lines right away.
If you detect GAS: do not light matches; extinguish all flames; report gas service interruptions to your gas company.
