Keep your family safe and property protected.
When extreme weather strikes, you want to make sure your family is safe and your home is as secure as possible. In the Midwest, strong winds, hail, and tornados are some of the most common dangerous weather conditions. Check out these quick tips to prep for severe weather.
Prepping for Hail
Hail is never fun. Mix that with wind, and there could be some damage to your property and belongings. Minimize vehicle damage by having a plan to pull your car into the garage or under a covering, if possible.
Be sure to have your gutters and drainage areas cleaned out so the hail can drain as quickly as it melts. Also, if you have lightweight décor outside, such as throw pillows or cushions on patio furniture, make sure they are secured to the furniture to avoid blowing away.
Tornado Safety & Preparation
While it’s important to protect your home during severe weather, the safety of your family is top priority.
