Stay indoors Listen to radio for warnings If building breaks up hide under mattresses in the strongest and smallest room in the house If the wind drops DO NOT leave the house because more wind will come because of the ‘eye of the cyclone’. If you are driving then park but STAY AWAY from trees and the sea and DO NOT enter flood waters

Do not go out until advised ‘it is safe’ Check for gas leaks DO NOT use electrical appliances, if they are wet. Listen to local radio for warnings If have to evacuate, DO NOT rush and don’t enter flood waters. Check that neighbours are okay Do not make unnecessary phone calls
