Storm Preparedness Tips for Eugene Residents?
Strong winds can cause severe damage to homes and structures. Thunderstorms in the Eugene area are known to bring strong winds and often occur with little advanced warning. Our South Eugene and Florence team offers this information from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):
Fortify Your Roof
Your roof is your first line of defense in a high wind event. Re-adhere any loose shingles and consider impact-resistant shingles when installing a roof. Install roof strappings to anchor the roof framing to the wall framings so the wind can’t lift your roof off your house.
Trim or Remove Dead, Damaged, or Rotting Trees and Limbs
High winds can cause trees and branches to fall. Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.
Secure Objects Outside the Home
Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home. Secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.
