After the storm moves out, remember these tips.
Listen for reports about boil water advisories.
Look out for downed trees and power lines.
If you come across a downed power line remember that you cannot see electricity and that line might still be ‘hot' so keep everyone away from the line and call your power company or local authority.
Stay out of any building that is surrounded by water.
Be sure to service any damaged septic tanks.
Clean and disinfect all of your personal items that got wet and/or you recover from storm debris.
And, Do not allow children to play outside in any of the flood water.
