What To Do After A Hurricane


The most important thing to do is to stay calm and safe. Here are tips from the Red Cross:

  • Continue listening to a NOAA Weather Radio or the local news for the latest updates.

  • Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent flooding even after the hurricane or tropical storm has ended.

  • If you evacuated, return home only when officials say it is safe.

  • Drive only if necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges.

  • Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to the power company.

  • Stay out of any building that has water around it.

  • Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of damage, both of the building and its contents, for insurance purposes.

  • Use flashlights in the dark. Do NOT use candles.

  • Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure it’s not contaminated.

  • Check refrigerated food for spoilage. If in doubt, throw it out.

  • Wear protective clothing and be cautious when cleaning up to avoid injury.

  • Watch animals closely and keep them under your direct control.

  • Use the telephone only for emergency calls.
