Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 22, 2013
Inspect your roof and how it is connected to the walls of your home. Strong metal connectors can withstand more impact than nails. Roofing tiles and shingles need to be attached with six nails in high-wind areas. Tiles should be fastened with screws or some kind of strong adhesive. Repair any holes or tears and check to make sure gutters are clear and sturdy.
Weak or dead branches could inflict serious damage so it is important to keep trees trimmed. Remember to clear your porches, patios and yards of any loose objects that could become airborne and dangerous. Learn hurricane evacuation routes to know where to go and how to get there in an emergency.
Hurricane planning should not be taken lightly. Designate an emergency meeting spot and if you have pets make sure they are included in the plan too. Adults should know where electrical, gas and water shut-offs are located and how to properly turn them off. Each household should have a stocked first-aid kit and emergency supply kit with plenty of clean water for every member.
