Tampa is on the Gulf Coast of Florida and sees its fair share of wind damage from storms. Tampa is a spectacular city with lots of bustling activity that includes high-octane sports, stunning helicopter views, gorgeous natural water parks, walking trails, and the usual multi-cuisine restaurants and shopping to complement it. Tampa is blessed with scenic water bodies, miles and miles of white sand, azure skies, and the green expanse of the Atlantic! It has a tropical climate, and its humid summers are scattered with thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds. While the winters are dry, the city is vulnerable to hurricanes during the summer, which has in the past caused widespread damage to the city. One such hurricane damaged the electricity grid leaving the entire city without power!
Most of us know what precautions to take before a wind storm. Cutting down trees, securing windows and doors firmly, keeping garden furniture and implements anchored are some common-sense things that you know all about. You are also aware that in a wind-prone area like Tampa, you need to purchase good homeowner’s insurance to protect your home against the vagaries of nature. But do you know what to do during a windstorm?
Here are some tips:
-First of all, don’t panic! Think of what you need to do.
-If you’re driving, avoid bridges and flyovers. Stop and immediately look for a place to park.
-Park your car in a covered place like a garage or underground parking, away from harm’s way.
-Keep yourself and your family safe by staying in the basement of your home, far from windows and doors, till the storm abates.
Once the storm has passed, you need to first check the damage that it has caused. After ascertaining that all family members are safe, call up your insurance provider to keep them informed. It would be a good idea to call a good public adjuster like Experienced Public Adjusters in Tampa. In the aftermath of the devastation, it is normal for a person to get dis-oriented.
