Cincinnati Insurance Tip: WHEN YOU KNOW A STORM IS COMING, TAKE STEPS TO PREPARE

Posted by TWG Insurance on September 11, 2018

By Cincinnati Insurance

There are steps you can take to prepare your home or business for a storm.

When a hurricane or tropical storm turns inland, it may diminish in strength, but the potential remains for severe damage from winds and heavy rain. When you know a storm is coming, take steps to minimize damage and speed recovery.

First and foremost, take whatever precautions are necessary to protect yourself and your family. While property preparations are important, they’re not worth risking life or health. If you need to evacuate, do so, as long as you have time to reach a place of safety. Don’t be caught on the roads in your car or attempt to drive through water-covered streets. Once the storm reaches your area, stay inside, away from windows and possible flying debris.
