TRACKING HURRICANE FLORENCE
Please be sure you are starting to make preparations to keep your family, home and vehicles safe!
If you have a sump pump, make sure you have a battery back up for it, or even a spare at the ready. Also, if you have a sump pump make sure you have coverage for it failing and what the limit of coverage is if you have a limit so that you know how to properly prepare.
Check your gutters and clean if needed! With this much rain and already saturated ground you don't want water coming in through the foundation as that is NOT a covered claim.
If you have an in ground stairwell, make sure your drains are cleared.
Clear all window wells of debris. And check the drains and window wells throughout the storm that they do not get clogged with debris.
Secure or bring everything inside that could become flying debris.
Trim any limbs that are overhanging.
In case you lose electricity be sure to have non-perishables on hand to last your family 3 days. Fill your tubs with water for those on wells so that you can flush the commode. Check your propane tanks on your grill to give you an option to make meals prior to the arrival of the storm. Finally should you lose power and use a generator use it safely!!
