Weathering the storms



For tenants in locations prone to sever storms, there are things you can do to help prepare yourself and your rental home.

  • Know how to turn off water, power and gas.
  • Have a plan in place for taking shelter. This should be the strongest room in the house.
  • Prepare a pack of emergency essentials such as containers for drinking water and possibly fuel, masking tape for windows and necessary items for sand-bagging.
  • Have relevant insurances up to date.

If severe weather warnings are issued:

  • Disconnect electrical appliances.
  • Secure outdoor furniture and garden items.
  • Turn off electricity and gas.
  • Fill buckets and baths with clean water.
  • Close windows with shutters or crisscross strong tape.
  • Close curtains.
  • Park vehicles under cover and away from trees, powerlines and waterways. If necessary, Use firmly tied blankets or suchlike to help prevent hail damage.
  • Move people and pets to the safest location.
  • Keep your emergency kit close at hand.
  • Stay tuned to local radio for updates.

If you have concerns about roofing, gutters, non-closing doors and windows, large trees and other such property matters, communicate your concerns to your property manager well before storm season begins.
