East Coast Urged to Prepare as Hurricane Irene Approaches
Date:8/25/2011

ou live in a high-rise building. Hurricane winds are stronger at higher elevations.
  • If you live on the coast, on a floodplain, near a river, or on an inland waterway.
  • If you feel you are in danger.
  • If you are unable to evacuate, go to your safe room. If you do not have a safe room, you should:

    • Stay indoors during the hurricane and keep away from windows and glass doors.
    • Secure and brace external doors and close all interior doors.
    • Keep curtains and blinds closed.
    • Take refuge in a small interior room, closet or hallway on the lowest level. Lie on the floor under a table or another sturdy object.
    • Don't be fooled if there is a lull in the hurricane. It could be the eye of the storm, which will be followed by a resumption of extreme winds.

    More information

    The U.S. government's Ready America website has more about staying safe during a hurricane.
