Protect Your Home in Cheboygan From High Winds

9/4/2019 (Permalink)

Damaging winds or “straight-line” winds are classified as those exceeding 50-60mph. These can occur during a severe thunderstorm or strong weather system. During an especially strong thunderstorm, the winds could exceed a whopping 100mph. Winds can blow small to large objects around and cause extensive destruction for miles. Here is how to prepare and protect yourself from wind damage.

Find shelter. Have a location in your home that you can take cover in. This should be away from any windows or glass doors, preferably in the middle of your home or basement. Those living in mobile homes should evacuate, as these are easily overturned and punctured by high winds.

Protect your property. If you know strong winds are near, move garbage cans, outdoor furniture, grills and anything else that could be potentially dangerous if blown over into your home or garage. Try to store your vehicles in a garage and dock any boats securely.

Power lines. High winds lead to fallen power lines. Do not try to free lines or remove debris – call and report them.  “Stay Away and Stay Alive.” If you see someone who may have been shocked do not try to touch them – you could also fall victim to electrocution. Call 911 and get them the right attention as quickly as possible. If a power line falls onto your car, stay inside the vehicle and do not touch any metal framing in your vehicle. Do not exit the car unless it catches on fire – if you must do so, do not step out – but jump out without touching any metal portions of the interior/exterior.

Driving in winds. Keep both hands on the wheel (wind can jerk and pull your wheel around) and immediately reduce your speed. If winds are severe enough, turn on your hazards, pull onto the shoulder of the road and stop until the conditions subside.

If your home or business has had property damage due to high winds, make sure to call SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan and get us on the line.  24/7 Emergency Services and board up services are available to protect your property from further damage and secondary damages occurring.
