Take extra care in turning off any propane tanks that you have and make sure to purchase some fire extinguishers and check on your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure they are functioning. If you have the financial means to do so, spring for a backup generator so that if the power gets knocked out by the storm that you’re not in the dark.

In the event of heavy winds or a hurricane, you’re going to want to board up your windows and doors.

In the event of a prolonged winter storm, insulate your house and make it cold weatherproof.
