How to prepare and stay safe!

Recommended Posts

First of all, pls excuse me if this is not the proper place to discuss this as I cant find anything pertaining to weather :). Anyways, I am from PH and three hours ago Super Typhoon Mangkhut is still barreling toward the northern Philippines (where i am located), packing sustained winds of 167 mph (269 kph). While one hurricane is also affecting North Carolina, USA. 

To all players around the world, especially those who are located in the affected areas/countries: pls stay safe!! Be vigilant to life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds in areas located near the water..and landslides and landfalls for other areas.

 

HOW TO PREPARE AND BE SAFE?

BEFORE THE STORM:

If your home cannot withstand high winds, go to the nearest sturdy building or storm shelter.

Stay away from riverbanks and coastal areas during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning.

Avoid unnecessary travel. You don’t want to be caught outside during a storm.

Harvest crops, if possible. Fields may be damaged by high winds and flooding.

Turn on your TV/radio. You’ll get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions from PAGASA.

DURING THE STORM:

Close storm shutters if possible and stay away from windows. Flying glass from broken windows could injure you.

Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Just 15 cm of moving water can knock you down and half a meter of water can sweep your vehicle away.

Keep children and pets inside. They could be injured by flying debris outside.
