    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
    furniture and trash cans before winds increase. The best thing to
    do is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food
    and water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or
    candles in the event of a power outage.

    Be prepared to take alternate routes if roads are closed due to
    high winds, particularly if you plan on traveling in a high-
    profile vehicle.
