3 Things to Do After a Storm Warning
Category : Oklahoma Storm Shelters
If you’ve have through a storm warning, you know exactly how they feel. You feel threatened by the weather and long to go indoors and away from the danger of the elements.
A storm warning provides time for individuals and communities to prepare themselves and avoid any damage during the event.
The best way to prepare for a storm is to start planning as early as possible.
Here are some things you can do after a storm warning has been issued:
1. Know your local resources
While many organizations can help you during this time, including your local fire department, police department, and hospital. Hence, it’s important to know who they are and what they can provide when an emergency strikes. This information is available on their websites, social media pages, and phone books.
2. Keep informed
Keep an eye on local news stations for updates on current conditions and if there is a threat of severe weather coming your way.
The National Weather Service provides a 24-hour forecast that gives information about temperature, wind speed and direction, humidity levels, precipitation amounts (rainfall), UV index levels, cloud cover, and more!
They also have an interactive radar map so you can see where storms are forming or moving through your area!
3. Prepare A Safety Kit, And Store Supplies
- Make sure you have at least a week’s worth of water and non-perishable food. This can be in the form of canned goods, shelf-stable meals, or freeze-dried meals. It is also a good idea to keep some non-perishable snacks on hand for when you feel hungry but have no electricity available.
- Stock up on bottled water as well.
- A first aid kit that includes bandages, gauze, pain killers, and other items that may be needed after a storm passes through your area.
- A flashlight with extra batteries so that you can charge it when needed (if there is no power).
- Extra blankets and warm clothing in case it gets cold once the storm passes through your area.
Keep these items handy in case they’re needed during an evacuation or if you need them while clearing away fallen trees or limbs. You can also consider storing them in a safe room, garage shelter, or an Underground bunkers in OKC.
