Three Risks After a Hurricane
Clear Lake will often have hurricanes which leave devastation along its wake. It is important to keep an eye out for these three potential risks after a hurricane.
- Bodily Harm - Flood water carries bacteria and other contaminates. Before entering your home wear proper protective equipment such as gloves and goggles. It is also important to have all your vaccinations such as Hepatitis and Tetanus.
- Electrical Shock - Many power lines and cables will be damaged during the storm. If the power has not been cut from the lines then they can pass electrical currents along the flood water.
- Local Wildlife - Be careful during the clean up process as many wildlife creatures will also be homeless or maybe in a new home; your home. It is common to find snakes and rats trying to stay on high ground.
Remember these risks before doing any cleaning and remediation after a hurricane. Stay safe out there.
