Staying Safe During Spring Severe Weather

Spring weather in Hopkinsville can be unpredictable. Raymond Nelson Insurance wants to prepare you for sudden weather changes with these severe weather tips:
Getting your home ready
  • Ensure your gutters and downspouts are cleaned. Heavy rains should flow freely off your roof and drain well away from your home.
  • Prune tree limbs and branches.
    • In high winds, these branches can snap off and damage your home or power lines.
    • Tree Trimming Tips
  • Secure patio furniture and other yard items that could become projectiles in heavy winds.
    • Outdoor trampolines can be blown several yards away and cause damage to property and people.
  • Keep blinds and curtains closed to help protect against broken glass.
  • Protect your vehicle from hail damage by tying down heavy blankets over it.
Emergency kits:
  • A basic kit should include the following:
    • Flashlight with fresh batteries
    • Battery powered weather radio
    • First aid kit*
    • Sanitizing wipes
    • At least a 3-day supply of canned or dried food and water.
    • *The Federal Emergency Management Agency has a list of emergency supplies.
