Be Ready for Hurricane Season with Tips from Amica Insurance

Lincoln, RI (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Hurricane Preparedness Week kicks off on Sunday, May 26, so it’s a good time to start thinking about ways to protect your family, home and other property from these dangerous storms.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, hurricanes can produce winds of more than 155 mph and cause tornadoes and microbursts. They also bring heavy rain, flooding, landslides and mudslides, leaving a path of destruction in their wakes.

That’s why Amica Insurance is offering the following tips from FEMA to prepare for hurricanes, which typically strike from June to November:

  • Put together an emergency kit with enough food, water and supplies to last 72 hours. You should also develop a family communication plan.
  • Learn about evacuation routes and how to find higher ground. Decide where you will go and alternate ways to get there if you have to evacuate.
  • Cover all of your home’s windows with 5/8-inch plywood that has been cut to fit and is ready to install. Taping windows will not stop them from breaking.
  • Trim back trees and shrubs to make them more wind-resistant, and clear gutters and downspouts of all debris.
  • Reinforce garage doors. If wind blows through the garage, it can cause serious structural damage to other parts of your home.
  • Make sure outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and other belongings that are not tied down are brought inside.
  • Purchase a generator for emergencies.
  • If you live in a tall building, find shelter on the 10th floor or lower before the storm strikes.
