Hurricane Names and Protection

In the past few years CT has experienced its share of hurricanes. What many people don’t know is long before the hurricane season is even underway the storms have already been named. Hurricane names for 2015 are Ana, Bill, Claudette, Danny, Erika, Fred, Grace, Henri, Ida, Joaquin, Kate, Larry, Mindy, Nicholas, Odette, Peter, Rose, Sam, Teresa, Victor and Wanda.  Hopefully we won’t even get to meet the first storm of the season, but if we do it’s always of upmost importance to be prepared. Make sure that your roofs is in top condition, because the roof is always the houses top line of defense. Check your attic ventilation, because large quantities of water can get blown inside the vents when winds reach up to 90 miles per hour. Windows and doors, shuttering the windows is an excellent defense against items breaking glass.  Also check your surroundings, make sure that your lawn doesn’t have loose items that can be picked up and become windborne.
