Disaster Planning Series – Part Five: Thunderstorms and Lightning

Disasters can hit at anytime so thinking about them in advance is critical especially for both landlords and tenants. Founder/Managing Partner Lamar Hunt Jr. wants not just his tenants to be prepared but anyone reading this post. So how do you prepare for thunderstorms and lightning? First, be knowledgeable about incoming weather. Most cities have local radar sites that can be observed from your computer. Stay tuned to weather forecasts and news stations for the latest possible weather alerts. When you receive a weather alert take heed. Next, postpone all outdoor activities and get everyone inside. Unplug any electronic equipment until the storm passes. Before the bad weather comes, remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury. Also, secure outdoor chairs and other objects that could blow away and cause damage or injury. If you are in a car make sure it isn’t a convertible however you are much safer in a car than out in the open. The bottomline is to know when a storm is coming and stay inside until it passes.
