What You Can Do Now
- Sign up for www.jccalert.org
- Know Your Zone www.jamescitycountyva.gov/knowyourzone
- Check your emergency plans and supplies – www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
- Check with your neighbors, especially the elderly and those without access to the Internet.
- Prepare your home. Bring loose, lightweight objects inside that could become projectiles in high winds such as patio furniture and garbage cans. Anchor objects that would be unsafe to bring inside such as propane tanks and trim or remove trees close enough to fall on the building.
- Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts to prevent flooding and unnecessary pressure on awnings.
