Guard Your House This Hurricane Season Using Modern Windows

Jan 22, 2011
Hurricane season starts the first day in June and ends the last day in November. During the months in between, there are several tropical storms and hurricanes that wreck havoc on the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, the Gulf Coast and areas of the East Coast. Hurricanes are fierce storms that can cause sizeable damage to property and in many cases, the death toll is heartbreaking. Professionals predict the 2010 hurricane season will be further active than in earlier years, but there are more than a few steps every person can take to stay safe during hurricane season and to help curtail damage.

The Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) urge everyone to go over a check-list to guarantee their families, homes and businesses are prepared for damaging winds and heavy rains associated with hurricanes and tropical storms. A well ready emergency package, a family emergency plan and current information can go a long way in helping to avoid injuries and property damage.

If you live in a hurricane prone region, keep a hand-powered, battery powered or solar powered radio ready to be tuned for further information. Anyone who does not heed the warnings and pick to stay in their residence during a hurricane, should take precautions to stay safe. Notify family members outside of the hurricane area of your plans. Beginning protecting your home by installing new windows.

Listen to the radio or watch the TV station for weather reports and updates. Practice an emergency exit plan with your family. If possible, before the storm hit, go to a community shelter - take cash, identification, blankets, food, medicine and toiletries. Do not go outside and danger getting hurt by flying debris - stay inside until the storm is completely over. Go to the basement or to the middle room, one with no windows. If there is no basement or center room, stay away from all windows and doors. If your residence is damaged, go to a neighbors house - as soon as possible. Get enough cash to last for several days - along the lines of unexpected emergencies.

Get further information at 800-CDC-INFO. As soon as the weather reporter or officials issue a hurricane warning, get prepared to secure your property. For the top safety of windows, residents in certain areas should invest in permanent storm shutters or board up windows with marine plywood to prevent broken windows. An 'X' on the window with tape does nothing to prevent windows from breaking, it may possibly help in keeping the broken glass together.
