Unpredictable Ohio Weather
Ohio weather can often have more twists and turns than a new roller coaster at Kings Island or Cedar Point. It is freezing in the morning and warm in the afternoon or vice versa. It’s snowing, but that wasn’t in the forecast. This actually happens here. It is not uncommon for the temperature to change more than 30 degrees in a single 24-hour period.
Recently, we have been experiencing mostly mild winter temperatures in our region. However, we have just begun a cold snap that is predicted to last several days.
Extreme weather changes can wreak havoc on your home causing water damage, mold damage and even fire damage.
Here are a few tips that can help you prepare in case of a weather emergency.
- Emergency Kit (with supplies to last at least three days)
- Prescription Medications
- Battery operated devices and charging options
- Inspect home systems to ensure proper function (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, etc.)
- Maintain and inspect all supplemental heating devices (portable heaters, chimneys, etc.)
A comprehensive list of items to include in your emergency kit is available at www.ready.gov along with more information to help you stay ahead of the storm.
