During a hurricane
When a Watch is issued: This means storm conditions are possible and could reach your location within 48 hours or less. Although a watch does not guarantee your location will be hit, it’s still best to prepare to take action. If there are any last-minute supplies needed to fortify the home and emergency kit, get them now. Lines may already be long and supplies running short.
When a Warning is issued: A warning means a storm will move in the area and is expected to hit in 36 hours or less. Hurricane preparations will begin to get difficult due to wind increase and long lines for supplies.
If an evacuation has not issued by local authorities, make an informed decision to stay or go.
PLAN TO GO IF:
During the Storm
NEVER put a generator inside the home. CO2 is odorless and colorless and can kill in minutes. Generac and PGMA recommend not placing a generator within five feet of any livable space. That includes a deck or patio.
