Winter Storm Preparedness

Winter storms can range from a moderate snow over a few hours to a blizzard with blinding, wind-driven snow that lasts for several days. Some winter storms are large enough to affect several states, while others affect only a single community. Many winter storms are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures and sometimes by strong winds, icing, sleet and freezing rain.
Regardless of the severity of a winter storm, you should be prepared in order to remain safe during these events.
Know the Difference
Winter Storm Outlook - Winter storm conditions are possible in the next 2 to 5 days.
Winter Weather Advisory - Winter weather conditions are expected to cause significant inconveniences and may be hazardous. When caution is used, these situations should not be life threatening.
Winter Storm Watch - Winter storm conditions are possible within the next 36 to 48 hours. People in a watch area should review their winter storm plans and stay informed about weather conditions.
Winter Storm Warning - Life-threatening, severe winter conditions have begun or will begin within 24 hours. People in a warning area should take precautions immediately.

Storing Gasoline

If you are storing gasoline.... Gas should be stored in approved gas cans only (5 gallons or less) and should be stored away from open flames, and places where static electricity can ignite vapors. The best place is a shed, away from the house, in metal cabinet properly labeled with flammable markings.


Disasters & Emergencies

Emergency Preparedness should always be a concern, especially when it comes to an evacuation. If an evacuation is called for, either voluntary or mandatory, you should evacuate. In this day and age there is no reason for hurricane related deaths. Should you stay, please notify family members of your choice as well as the Fire Department. During extreme weather conditions it maybe come difficult to respond during certain weather conditions.

Should you decide to evacuate, please consider taking the following: Deed to house/property, insurance information, birth certificates, passports, keys, photo albums. Back up computer information to CDs. Most importantly, make sure your cars have a full tank of gas and that you have cash on hand. Turn off gas and electric. If need be, board up windows. Write this list down, add items to it you feel are necesary and keep it on file.

Should you decide to stay, have another list on file. In addition to the above, you need to be well stocked on non perishable foods and water. Have a gas or coal BBQ. Have buckets available to store water for bathing. Matches, candles, batteries, radio. In addition to your car, make sure you have gas for your generator. Keep in mind during Hurricane Gloria, Bayport was without power for 1 week.
