Coping with Severe Storms

Coping with Severe Storms


  • Check the TV, local radio and newspapers for the latest information and early warnings.
  • If you have access to the internet, the following websites are also useful for information and updates:
  • Park your car off the road and away from trees and high walls.
  • Make sure your house is in good order.
  • Secure outdoor items. Bring in as many items as possible that are lying around outside.
  • Close windows, clear window sills and draw the curtains to protect against flying glass.


  • Stay away from the windows and stay on the ground floor where possible.
  • Check the TV, local radio and newspapers for the latest information.


  • If damage has occurred, inform your landlord or insurers.
  • If the water, gas or electricity mains are not working inform the appropriate office.
  • Without risking personal safety, rope off or protect any damaged areas to prevent injuries.
