  • Bring any objects which are likely to be blown away inside
  • Close any doors, windows and shutters
  • Move away from the coast

During the storm

During the storm, you should:

  • Stay inside your home or quickly seek sturdy shelter in a safe place
  • Managers of construction sites should put any cranes in weathervane mode and assemble their personnel inside
  • Listen to the media (radio, television and internet)
  • Do not call the emergency services unnecessarily

After the storm

Once the storm has passed, you should:

  • Cut off branches which look like they may fall
  • Do not approach electrical lines which have fallen to the ground
