Hurricane Season Guidance for Individuals
If you evacuated your home, return only when officials say it is safe to do so. The storm may have passed, but roadways and bridges may be impassable, power lines may be down and flooding may still be present.
Stay out of any building that has an odor of gas, floodwaters around the building or if the home is damaged by fire or red tagged. Wait for the authorities to give you clearance that it is safe to enter. If you have any doubts about safety have the building inspected by a qualified building inspector or structural engineer before entering.
If you use a generator be sure to keep it outside the home and well ventilated. Do not run it in your garage or inside the home. Be sure to shut it off, and if possible let it cool down before refueling.
