High winds

Be prepared

  • Secure or store loose objects outside that could blow into windows.
  • Close and fasten doors and windows securely.
  • Park vehicles in a garage or well away from trees, buildings, walls and fences.

During high winds

  • Stay indoors as much as possible - don’t go outside to repair damage during a storm.
  • Find shelter in a substantial, permanent, enclosed building.
  • Slow down if driving on exposed routes, such as across bridges.
  • Find alternative, less exposed routes if possible.
  • Take particular care of side winds if driving a high-sided vehicle or if you’re towing another vehicle or container.
  • Don’t touch electrical or phone cables that have blown down or are hanging loose.
