Stay Inside

If you aren't told to evacuate during a storm and you rely on well water, consider cleaning your bathtub with bleach and filling it with water washing up and flushing toilets if the power goes out.

The experts at The Weather Channel advise you not to go outside, even after the passage of the eye of the storm, because it won’t be long before hurricane-force winds blowing in the opposite direction resume. Stay indoors and go to an interior room on the lowest level of the structure. Stay away from windows and doors.
