How to prepare for this week's rainstorm

Monday, November 22nd 2021, 10:20 am - There is still time to get ready

A rainfall warning has been issued for P.E.I., and a wind warning may be coming. Here's how to get ready.

The storm is expected to start in the west late Monday afternoon and spread east.

PREPARE FOR THE RAIN

Make sure the downspouts around your house are properly connected and unobstructed.

Ensure sump pumps are working.

Be ready for poor travel conditions. There could be standing water or flooding on some roads and streets. Adjust your speed accordingly, and do not attempt to drive through flooded areas. It can be difficult to know what is under the water.

PREPARE FOR THE WIND

Make sure loose objects outside are either secure or brought inside.

Strong winds can cause power outages. Stock up on essential needs, such as food, water and baby supplies before the storm comes.

If your water supply depends on electricity, fill your bathtub.

Charge up your cellphone so you can keep track of the latest news on the storm if the power goes out.

Unless it is necessary, stay at home.
