    8 Important Tips To Keep In Mind Now That Hurricane Season Is Revving Up

    Hurricane season goes until November 30, so trim your trees, clean the gutters, and buy an extra portable charger.

    1. Clean out the gutters and check them for damage to prevent flooding.

    2. Trim trees and shrubs to make them more wind-resistant.

    3. Bring in or anchor any yard equipment or patio furniture that may be damaged, or that may damage your house.

    4. Examine shutters for rust or damages a couple times a year, so you can fix them before a big storm rolls around.

    5. Stock up on at least three days' worth of supplies.

    6. If a storm is imminent, turn your fridge and freezer to the coldest settings to keep your food safe longer in the case of a power outage.

    7. Keep important documents in a portable file holder that you can grab quickly if you have to leave your home.

    8. Keep an extra fully-charged power bank in your home so you can still use your devices in the case of a power outage.
