Tips on preparing for a Nor’Easter 

Storms along the East Coast are called Nor’Easters. They pack their biggest punch between October and April, and are often full or powerful winds, rain or snow. 

Best way to be prepared is to plan ahead. Reach out to your insurance company for coverage and policy information, in case you have to file a claim. Keep your local SERVPRO’s phone number stored in your phone.  Keep plenty of water on hand, best bet is 1 gallon per person per day. Allow for at least 3 days. Stock up on dry nutritious food that can be easily stored and eaten if you lose power. Granola bars, bread, peanut butter, jelly, usually are the first things to disappear off of the shelves when there is an impending storm, so shop early. 

Follow your local forecast. If you have a fireplace, have plenty of extra wood on hand in case you lose power. Check batteries in carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.  

Keep important documents in water proof safe place. Take pictures and videos of personal belongings. If you store sentimental or irreplaceable items in a basement or lower level, move them to a higher point in your house. 

Have a plan and tell family and friends what your plans are. Keep your car filled with gas and your grill as well. If you lose power you can always use the grill for cooking , heating water and keeping coffee hot!  Keep cellphones charged and extra solar charges are a great investment.  

Most importantly do not panic! Being well prepared is game changer! Stay safe and call SERVPRO to take care of any flooding or wind damage your house sustains.
