Storms and Gales

Gale force winds can cause widespread damage to your property and can result in loss of power and disruption to all forms of transport.

Being aware of the weather forecast and weather warnings in your area will give you time to make preparations to minimise the potential disruption and damage that may be caused from storms and gales.

Preparations may include:

  • Travelling if only completely necessary;
  • Closing and securely fastening doors and windows, including those of outbuildings
  • Securing all loose items kept outside, such as garden future, to prevent them being blown around and causing damage
  • Park vehicles away from buildings, trees and fences.
