Check for leaks
Whether those are leaks on the ceiling, windows or roofing, take action right away. You have got to schedule an appointment instantly with your repair man. Putting pails and basins all over your house during the peak of a thunderstorm is the last thing you’d want to happen.

Check for trees

Especially if your yard caters to a number of trees, take time to cut out tree branches and limbs that may cause damage to your house caused by lightning or strong winds.

Check for emergency tools

For blackouts, you could have your emergency lamps charged or match and candles prepared. For floods, you could have your appliances placed in elevated areas. In the most unfavorable situations, you could have your food stock readied in the pantry.

At the end of the day, you are all geared up for whatever comes your way.
