Outside Your Home
If you know a storm is heading your way, you should clear your porches, patios and yards of any loose object that could become a projectile in high winds. This includes toys, yard tools, garden furniture, and even tree branches.
Tropical storm season can be devastating for residents of the coasts. Don't let yourself get caught unprepared. Prepare early and be sure to check the news regularly for storm warnings. You can also check out the government's FEMA Web site for more information.
