Severe weather


During a storm you may want to consider the following:

  • secure outdoor items and bring as much as possible indoors, including pets
  • close windows, clear window sills, and draw curtains to protect from flying glass
  • stay indoors and away from windows
  • keep some empty sandbags and sand (or earth) ready for use. At the first sign of trouble, place them around doorways and air-vents
  • have a 'survival plan' ready in case you need to act quickly. Think about what you would need to do if the water was about to get into your home
  • try to make sure your neighbours know about any warnings, especially if they are elderly or vulnerable
  • tune in to the radio or television to get the latest weather forecast or check the Met Office website
