Even a slight increase in wind speed can cause significant damage to many homes. Windstorms can damage and disrupt infrastructure, bringing down wires and blocking roads. Damage from high winds can happen anywhere in the region.
Was I affected by a windstorm in the past?
Have I looked at ways to improve safety in my home?
Do I have supplies to carry me through if I lost power and/or phone service for an extended period?
How do I or will I deal with damage and debris?
Could I have done something before the storm to lessen the impacts?
