If you must be on the road during the storm, please follow these safety tips:
Watch for Inoperative or Missing traffic lights or signs
Except when directed to proceed by a police officer or traffic control signal, every driver approaching an intersection should come to a complete stop before entering the intersection.
Beware of live wires
Do not, under any circumstance, drive over a downed electrical line.
Avoid flooded streets
Do not travel down a road submerged in water. Underlying currents could carry your vehicle away and your car could stall, trapping you in rising floodwaters. The flooded area may contain dangers such as debris, tree branches, or power lines that are not visible.
Watch for windy conditions
Windy conditions adversely affect all vehicles; in windy conditions, your best course of action is to slow down. Strong gusts can blow a car, cyclist or motorcyclist off course. Gusty wind can be one of the trickier driving conditions, especially when it is rapidly changing direction and intensity.
Check your vehicle
Make sure your tires are in good condition and be sure to have a full tank of gas.
