Tips for your home during storm season

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

(WFLX) - Obviously, there's no need to be too worried about this storm, but now is a good time to tweak your storm plan for the rest of the season.

First, take a critical eye to your yard. See which trees or shrubs need to be trimmed back. Make a checklist of all the items you will have to secure that are outside like lawn furniture, gas grills and even potted plants.

Check your hurricane food and water supplies. Pre-plan now.

If a major storm were to head our way, what will you do with your pets? Will your family stay or evacuate? And think about putting important paper work in water proof containers.
