The community is encouraged to take precautions and prepare for the upcoming storm season. View the tips below for helpful resources and tricks on how to be storm ready.
|1||Clean gutters and catch basins of debris and leaves. Help keep our creeks and Bays clean by never dumping in the catch basin.|
|2||For property owners with natural creek beds on their property, clear creek beds of debris.|
|3||Build a storm kit.: Keep needed emergency supplies in your home, at work, and in your car and discuss emergency plans with your family.|
|4||Build a sandbag wall to channel water to a drain or a gutter.|
|5||Have plywood, plastic sheeting, and other emergency building materials available in advance and keep handy for waterproofing.|
|6||Know your flood zone designation and your specific flood hazard. Obtain flood insurance if you are in a high-risk flood area. Homeowner insurance policies do not cover flood damage.|
|7||Plan in advance to assist your neighbors or have them help you.|
