Safety Precautions during Typhoons

Safety Precautions during Typhoons

  1. Keep your radio on and listen to the latest weather bulletin and announcements.
  2. Don’t pay attention to rumors.
  3. Stay away from low-lying beaches or other locations which may be swept away by high tides or storm waves. If your only passage to high ground is over a road likely to be under water during a severe storm, then leave early.
  4. If your house can’t be affected by a high tide and is well-built or anchored, then it is probably the best place to be during a storm.
  5. Board up and securely fasten windows. Makeshift boarding may do more harm than good. Whenever applicable, anchor the house with strong wires.
  6. Get extra food, particularly those that don’t need to be cooked and are easy to prepare. Remember that electric power may be cut off.
  7. If emergency cooking facilities are necessary, be sure they work.
  8. Store water as water service may be cut off.
  9. Always keep a flashlight handy.
  10. Check everything that may be blown away or turn loose. Flying objects are dangerous during typhoons.
  11. If the eye of the typhoon has passed your house, there may be a lull lasting for a few minutes to half an hour. Stay in a safe place. Make emergency repairs during the lull if necessary. But remember that the wind will return suddenly from the opposite direction with even greater violence.
  12. Be calm. Your ability to handle an emergency will inspire others and help them.
