Prepping The Outside
Prepping the outside of your home is one of the most important parts when it comes to staying safe from a heavy storm.
Secure Porch Items
Secure any loose items you may have lying around your property (chairs, tables, etc).
Correct loose fittings, corrosion, and any timber that has been termite-affected or is currently rotting.
Make sure that your car insurance, the insurance of the contents (of the home), and home insurance is up to date and valid.
Roof + Trees + Power
Check your roof to make sure it’s in good condition to weather a storm.
Removing branches that are close to your home (power lines, structures, roofs, etc).
Relocating power points so that they’re well above the estimated flooding level.
Unplug all valuable electronics that re not being used.
