Prepare your home:
- Ask your local council if your home is built to cyclone standards.
- Are you adequately insured? Make sure it covers you for storm surge, flooding and cyclone damage, including clean-up and debris removal.
- Check your roof and repair any loose tiles, eaves or roof screws.
- Ensure windows are fitted with shutters or metal screens.
- Trim any branches hanging over your house and clear gutters of leaves and debris.
- Make sure your household is familiar with the Standard Emergency Warning Signal (SEWS), which is generally broadcast when a cyclone is 12 hours or less away.
- Decide how you will look after your pets and what you will do if you have to leave them behind.
If you shelter at home:
- Turn off all electricity, gas and water; unplug all appliances.
- Keep your emergency kit close at hand.
- Bring your family into the strongest part of the house.
- Keep listening to the radio for cyclone updates.
- If the building begins to break up, shelter under a strong table, bench or heavy mattress.
- Beware the calm eye of the cyclone: stay inside until told it is safe to go outside.
- Comfort children.
