Thunderstorm Preparedness Tips

Did you know that Florida has over seventy days of thunderstorms per year? According to the American Red Cross, thunderstorms produce heavy rain that can cause flash flooding, and the high winds can cause structural damage and power outages. SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar has been responding to storm damage emergencies in Miramar for years. Here are some thunderstorm preparedness tips from the American Red Cross:

  • Learn about your local community’s emergency warning system for severe thunderstorms
  • Discuss thunderstorm safety and lightning safety with all members of your household
  • Pick a safe place in your home for household members to gather during a thunderstorm away from windows, skylights and glass doors that could be broken by strong winds or hail
  • Make a list of items to bring inside in the event of a severe thunderstorm
  • Make trees and shrubbery more wind resistant by keeping them trimmed and removing damaged branches
  • Protect your animals by ensuring that any outside buildings that house them are protected in the same way as your home
