• Clean out your rain gutters and downspouts. Clean all of them before it rains, then check and clean them after the first rain. Leaves and debris from your roof may have accumulated in rain gutters after the rain. Make sure your rain gutters aren’t damaged.
  • Fix any leaks before it starts to rain. Check your roof for any trouble areas.
  • Invest in an emergency generator. Think about a portable generator or permanent standby generator that comes on automatically when the power goes out.
  • Check any decks and balconies. Make sure water flows away from your walls and foundation.
