John Lohr, Minister responsible for the provincial Emergency Management Office, urges Nova Scotians to prepare for #HurricaneFiona.
Nova Scotians should monitor local weather forecasts and be ready for the storm’s arrival. The basic checklist includes:
— having enough food and water for 72 hours
— monitoring local media outlets for updates
— securing gates, doors and windows
— moving yard furniture and securing trash cans, hanging plants and anything that can be picked up by wind
— checking radio batteries
— filling vehicles with gas and parking them away from trees
— keeping pets inside
— moving any type of watercraft to high ground
— ensuring personal and family safety
— checking on neighbours
— not leaving candles unattended.
