Farmers also offers the following tips to help residents after a storm:

  • Listen to authorities: Make sure to get the «all clear» before returning home.
  • Avoid flood waters: Six inches of moving water can knock you down. One foot of fast-moving water can sweep your car away.
  • Even still water is dangerous: Pools of water can be electrified from underground or downed power lines.
  • Take inventory: Inspect your home and take any pictures of damage that occurred. Stay out of your home if you smell gas, notice fire damage, or if any floodwater remains.
