Weather Awareness Guide for Daytona Beach

Inspect your Home

Experts recommend assessing your home’s vulnerability to wind and water damage before hurricane season begins, and taking steps to reduce and insure against the risk.

Have your roof inspected for loose shingles and other weaknesses and make necessary repairs.
Make sure trees are well-trimmed.
Check that all doors have secure hinges and deadbolts.
If you have storm shutters, make sure they are in good working condition. If not, consider all your options for obtaining window protection this season.
If you have an emergency generator, make sure it is in working order. If not and you want to consider buying one this season.
Find your safe room. A closet or small room in your home, such as a laundry room or bathroom, could become a safe haven during a hurricane or tornado. The strongest part of your home usually is away from windows or exterior doors.
Make sure you have tools accessible if needed to turn off utilities in an emergency.
Review your home, wind-storm and flood insurance coverage to see if it still meets your needs.
