Storms that carry lightning, thunder, heavy rain and high winds can strike anywhere in the US. When a thunderstorm warning is announced, find shelter quickly. A few preparations beforehand can make the whole experience a little easier on you, your family and your home.
Gear up for potential power outages with flashlights, headlamps and extra alkaline batteries. Store them in a dry, cool place where they’ll be handy and available when you need them. You’ll also want power packs and cordless chargers for your phone or tablet. To protect your home, ensure that your sump pump battery is ready to fill in if the power goes out. And in the event of a longer outage, a generator might come in handy.
Stay dry and stay safe with these items and others we recommend here.
