Red Cross Getting Ahead of Fay as More Rain Falls Across State
Date:8/19/2008

Florida not out of the woods with Tropical Storm Fay

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Floridians should stay alert as Tropical Storm Fay continues her slow march up the Florida peninsula. The Red Cross is providing food and shelter for affected Florida residents and has more shelters ready in case the massive rain predictions materialize. Fay has left tens of thousands of Florida residents without power and the possibility of flooding and isolated tornadoes is high as the storm pushes northward.

More than 500 disaster relief workers are on the scene, a large majority of them Florida residents who have taken Red Cross training to help their friends and neighbors.

As Fay continues its trip across the state's peninsula, Red Cross shares the following safety tips for when the storm has passed through an area:

-- Keep listening to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for instructions.

-- If you evacuated, return home when local officials tell you it is safe to do so.

-- In case of a power outage, use flashlights in the dark; do not use candles.

-- In case of a power outage, do not open the refrigerator or freezer. An unopened refrigerator will keep foods cold enough for a couple of hours at least. A freezer that is half full will hold for up to 24 hours and a full freezer for 48 hours.

-- If you are using a generator, do not attempt to use it indoors, including inside a garage, carport, basement, crawlspace, or other enclosed area, even with ventilation. Opening doors and windows or using fans will not prevent CO buildup in the home. Be sure to place the generator away from open windows, doors, or vents leading into your home. Install battery-operated CO alarms in your home. Keep the generator dry. Be sure to turn the generator off and allow it to cool before refueling. Plug appliances directly into the generator, or use a heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cord.
