Source: HealthDay

(HealthDay News) -- If authorities suggest that you remain at home during a pending hurricane, there are precautions you can take to stay safe.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions:

  • Follow the latest weather reports on television or radio.
  • Stay indoors until you have been advised that it's safe to leave home, even if it looks calm outside.
  • Stay in a room without windows, or inside a closet.
  • Sit inside a bathtub with a piece of plywood overtop.
  • Be prepared to leave quickly if emergency officials order an evacuation.
