During the Storm

  • During the Storm
If you stay at home during a hurricane you should take the following precautions in addition to those mentioned on the before the storm page as the storm approaches:
  • Stay away from windows and doors, even if they are covered.

  • Take refuge in a small interior room, closet, hallway or basement if available. If you live in a two story home, choose a room on the first floor.

  • Close all interior doors and brace exterior doors if possible.

  • Lie on the floor under a table, or another sturdy object.
    Some protection is afforded by covering with a mattress during the height of the storm.

  • If the eye of the storm passes over, it will be calm for a short period of time.
    REMAIN INDOORS! As soon as the eye passes over, winds will increase rapidly to hurricane force from the opposite direction.

  • Remain calm. It may take several hours for the storm to pass.
