In the meantime, there are a few things you can do now, while the sun is shining, to prepare you for severe weather. The first thing to do is have a plan. Know where to go when severe weather hits, because a few extra minutes of planning and being prepared can make a difference. In your safe area, have your emergency supply kit packed and ready to go. 

The second thing is to have a communication plan. Collect contact information you might need for emergencies. Share this information with the entire family. Have a meeting with your family and practice your emergency plan so everyone knows what to do. 

Check with your insurance agent about what is covered if weather does damage your property. Take inventory and photos of the items in your house. This will help if/when you submit a claim to your insurance.
