Preparing Your Property for Tornado Season
The threat of tornadoes loom over Oklahoma City year-round. There are several precautionary measures you can take to protect your property against tornadoes or even just the strong winds that are often seen in Oklahoma City.
Check your insurance coverage. Make sure that your insurance policy is up-to-date and comprehensive. You may want to assess your belongings and take an inventory of your items so that you have you a record of what you own in the case that something does happen to your home or business.
Secure high-risk items. High-risk items are those that have a high risk of falling over. This includes top heavy items such as tall cabinets or bookshelves. Secure them to the wall with heavy duty brackets or molding. Also secure large appliances which could easily become damaged or cause extensive damage to other parts of your property easily.
Protect the exterior of your property. Lessen the chance of water and wind entering your home by making sure that all roof shingles are secure, installing an impact resistant garage door, and/or installing shutters on your windows.
