Are You Ready for Storms?

You may have heard some storm warnings for Sydney and Brisbane for this week. Fortunately Brisbane’s warning for this morning has been cancelled, but this afternoon may be different. We’re still expected to have some severe weather later in the week.

What to Expect

Like we’ve seen during previous summers recently, you can expect torrential rain, large hailstones and even flash flooding. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and remember to get that car undercover if you hear a hail warning. It’s probably a good idea to keep your car undercover as much as you can this week, as we’ve all been surprised by sudden hail before.

Preparation

Another important thing is to make sure your house is prepared for strong winds. Put away any loose items in the backyard, and make sure your windows are closed when you leave the house.

The whole week should be pretty wet, according to the latest weather reports. They said that tomorrow and Wednesday will be the worst. Make sure you pack that umbrella, and wear shoes that won’t get drenched easily.

Insurance

Does your insurance cover storm damage? It’s a bit late in the piece but you might want to check if your house and car insurance covers storm damage. You never know when hail will hit your car while out driving. This can reduce its worth dramatically.

Also, hail can damage houses significantly, especially when it’s accompanied by wind, which can smash windows easily.

Supplies

Another thing to remember is power outages. We all remember the flood of 2011, which caused havoc all around Brisbane. Things like candles, torches, batteries, matches, and water were all sold out from the supermarket within minutes.

In a city like Brisbane, it helps to have all these items ready because you never know when the power will go out, and, in the worst case scenario, another flood will strand you at home. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again! Safe travels to all of you from your friends at Natures Naturals.
