Health Tip: Prepare for High Winds

(HealthDay News) -- High winds can occur during a thunderstorm, hurricane or other strong weather system.

The National Weather Service suggests how to prepare for high winds:

  • Trim tree branches away from your home and powerlines.

  • Secure loose gutters and shutters.

  • Identify an interior room, such as a basement or bathroom, that you can go to.

  • If you live in a mobile home, identify a sturdy building nearby.

  • Update your emergency kit and include enough food and water for three days.

  • Make a list of items outside your home that you'll need to tie down or store.
