See what windows are facing the most wind factor, and have pywood on hand to cover them, It will prevent blow outs...Windows blowing in can and do kill people. Be protected by NOT remaining in rooms with a lot of windows in them.
You can get them at Farming supplie stores all the time, and they are CHEAP! ANd they work well. Oh, don't forget fuel for lamps but get the kind that burns clean as possible. Remember not to keep rooms sealed when using candles or fuel lamps, they take oxygen and a little fresh air does not hurt. Candles provide heat as well. Choosing one main room where people gather is best, and set up sleeping as well in this space. Can keep everyone warm, cosy, and don't forget to keep some air flowing for safety....
Never use a barbeque inside. I know that sounds like common sense, but you would be surpised how many people die or set fires to their homes with this problem.
They are not expensive, and Grundige (a german make) is one of the most reliable and best out there...
Grids can be knocked out due to blown out power stations, and wind damage to them...downd lines and the like. Charles can fill us in on this one I bet!!
Power can take a very long time to restore depending upon what gets blown in the process, and where. Too, if lines are old, that takes even longer to fix, for it often means replacing the whole kit and caboodle. This happened in Canada, and in some places it took 6 months to restore power in rural areas!!! Worst Ice storm of the Century....Hundreds of miles effected. This was only a couple of years ago too!
It is NOT OVER YET>>>so please be as prepared as you can be.
Kristens area is going to be an area of troubls too this year..so prepare out there.
We are also getting very heavey winds on the Prairies too.
Since the Earth tilted after the Sunami...yup, and permanantly until the next quake moves our planet...
The winds have shifted accordingly...and you will see heavier storms with regard to the shift in the upper winds in our atmoshpere....even hurricans are predicted to be even MORE powerful than even LAST year....again, just get what you have together.
If you have a big family, this could be a wise considaration.....you are in touch no matter what else the world is going through.
Knowing what to do, even a little can make a world of difference, and it is NOT expensive to take. A couple of days and you have some solid basic information that can and does give comfort.
I know, I have used it in a car accident outside of my place of work! And it does come back to you! You remember more than you know after those classes.
If you are alone like I am, be self reliant as far as possible. Know what you yourself can do, and prepare accordingly.
Weather is just a part of our earth. It changes too, due to the shift in our magnetic shield around our planet, and the earth is at this point, half way through one of these shifts, they happen every 2000 to 2500 years. As the poles reverse, the sheild gets weaker, and weather gets much more powerful, then after the shift things settle back down again. This process can take upward to ten years. That means yet another 5 or so years of what we are currently going through.
This has been photographed by NASA, and is current Scientific observational status with regards to weather shifts etc on our planet. Of course, there are many other factors out there that effect our weather. Volcanoes and earthquakes, global warming and so on.
I hope this helps!
There are many other things to considar, but this is a good start to add to your already good lists out there.
Blessings to all,
