The East Coast Prepares for Frankenstorm!

Friday, October 26th, 2012

As Hurricane Sandy moves towards New England and a winter storm moves in from the West, the east coast needs to prepare for the potential effects of this massive storm.

Hurricane Sandy | Bucks County | Carney Plumbing, Heating  & CoolingCNN Reports, “that Sandy could be a storm ‘of historic proportion’…There is a 90% chance it will hit the American Northeast, said CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri, where $1 billion in damage could mount as it rolls inland, even affecting parts of the Midwest.”

Here at Carney Plumbing, Heating & Cooling we have already been getting calls about sump pumps and sump pump back-ups from customers eager to prepare for the storm. If current weather predictions are accurate, Hurricane Sandy could be the greatest storm of our time.  With only days left before the storm hits in Bucks and Montgomery Counties now is the time to prepare.  Here are some helpful tips to keep your family safe during the storm:

Before the storm hits:

  • Build an emergency kit, including food, water, warm clothing and other supplies.  Plan ahead for the specific dietary or medical needs of your family.  Pack enough supplies to last at least 72 hours.  Include any items that will help you stay warm and safe in the event of a power outage.  Please view these additional tips that may be helpful when preparing your emergency kit: http://www.ready.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/checklist_1.pdf.
  • Bring pets indoors.
  • Plan an evacuation route taking elevation, existing bodies of water and flood-prone areas into consideration.
  • Take steps to secure your home, including covering windows, trimming trees and shrubs, clearing clogged rain gutters, reinforcing garage doors and bringing outdoor furniture and decorations inside.  Installing a generator is also a great idea for emergencies.
  • Turn your refrigerator to the coldest setting to keep items fresh in the event of a power outage.

 

During the storm:

  • Stay indoors and away from windows and glass.
  • Close interior doors.  Keep curtains and blinds closed.
  • Remain on the lowest level of your home in a small room, closet or hallway or lie under a table on the floor.
  • Avoid travel unless absolutely necessary.  If you need to travel, use main roads and only travel during the day.  Let someone know when you’re leaving, where you’re headed, what route you will take and what time you plan to arrive at your destination.
  • Listen to the radio or TV for storm updates.

 

We hope your family stays safe and warm this winter!
