How to Prepare for Spring Storm Season


Severe thunderstorms are all too common during the Spring months in Texas. While you may not think twice about a thunderstorm, you may want to take extra precautions this season. Below are some storm preparedness tips to keep in mind before the Spring rainy season hits. We believe it’s always better to be safe than sorry!

1. Hear Thunder? Head Indoors.

Thunder may be harmless, but thunder accompanied by lightning could be trouble. The American Red Cross says that lightning strikes kill more people every year than tornados or hurricanes. Thunderstorms can also come with high winds and flooding, so take shelter at the first sign.

2. Safeguard Your Electronics

Plugging your major electrical devices into a power strip or surge protector, is the best way to prevent damage during a storm. If you do not have a surge protector, be sure to unplug your large electrical appliances (TV’s, stereos, computers, etc.) before a storm hits.

3. Be Prepared for Power Outages

There is nothing worse than having your power go out during the evening and being left in the dark. Try to refrain from using candles, and stick to battery-operated flashlights and lanterns for your light source. Also, avoid opening your fridge and freezer doors if possible. This will keep your food fresh and cold longer. You never know how long the power will be out.

4. Notice A Downed Power Line? Stay away!!

The power line may be down, but electricity could still be flowing through it. If you notice a downed power line, immediately report it to your utility company or simply call 911.
