Extreme weather (i.e. floods, winter weather, power outages, hurricanes, extreme heat, etc) can strike at any time. The best thing you can do is to be prepared. Check for charging/ cooling-warming shelters if power goes out
Step 1: Build a Kit
Putting together a disaster supplies kit will help you and your family be prepared for an emergency. A disaster supply kit is a basic collection of items that you may need in the event of an emergency. It is especially important to have a winter weather kit in your car in case of an emergency.
Step 2: Make a Plan
Make sure you and your family have a plan set in place before a disaster strikes. You should discuss: how you will get to a safe place; how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations. It is important to include all family members in this process, including children.
Step 3: Be Informed
Make sure you are receiving extreme weather alerts.
