Hail: Hailstorm - Staying Safe

Before

  • When hail is forecast, close your drapes, blinds or window shades to prevent potential injury from broken glass blowing inside.

During

  • Do not try to go outside to protect your property during a storm. Stay indoors until the storm has passed.
  • Stay away from skylights, windows and doors.

After

  • Verify that you can safely move around outside.  Avoid any broken or downed branches and power lines.
  • Check the trees, shrubs and plants around your house.  If they are stripped of their foliage, there is a possibility your roof is damaged.  Dented patio covers, screens or soft aluminum roof vents could also indicate roof damage.
  • Cover any broken windows and holes in your roof to prevent water intrusion following hail damage.
