6 Steps to Protect Your Home from Hurricanes

6 Steps to Protect Your Home from Hurricanes

Hurricane Irma

we want to make sure you are well informed to protect yourself and your loved ones. We found 6 steps you can take to make sure you are in less danger as possible.

 

Now that hurricane season has begun, what can I do to protect my home from possible storm damage?

Brace your garage door to prevent more-extensive damage. “A lot of people believe that the roof is the most vulnerable part of the house,” says Stone. “But it’s not. It’s the garage door.” Most garage doors are not reinforced, and when the wind gets into the garage, it creates a positive push at the same time that the wind swirling above the structure creates a negative pull. That push-pull combination can cause the roof to fly off. See the National Weather Service information sheet to learn about kits that you can buy at home-improvement stores to brace your garage doors.

Secure your windows and doors. Broken windows can let in wind and rain, and they can also increase the pressure under the roof. Storm shutters provide the best protection, but boarding up windows when a storm is on the way can help, too. Don’t bother taping your windows, though. “Putting masking tape on the windows literally does nothing,” says Stone. Make sure doors have several locking mechanisms so they don’t fly open; deadbolts are best. And it’s important to secure windows and doors at all sides of the home -- not just the one facing the body of water where hurricanes could form -- because hurricanes can swirl in any direction. See the Institute for Business & Home Safety’s DisasterSafety.org for details about how to make your windows and doors more secure.

Protect your roof. Consider hurricane straps to ensure your roof is bolted to the rest of your house. And inspect your roof tiles or shingles to make sure they are secure. Use roofing cement to fix any loose tiles to prevent them from becoming lethal projectiles during a storm and damaging the underlying roofing material. Seal any areas where wires enter the home, minimizing the chance of water damage during heavy wind and rain.

Trim your trees. “Make sure that there are not any dead sections on your trees threatening the home,” says Stone. “Trees are a major factor that causes claims.” Broken limbs could land on your (or your neighbor’s) house or become missiles that can break windows during a storm. If your tree damages your house or a neighbor’s house, your insurance cover the damages, but it may pay only a portion -- say, $500 to $1,000 -- of the cost of tree removal. And in most cases, nobody’s insurance policy will pay if the tree falls but doesn’t hit anything, even though hauling it away could cost a few thousand dollars. See When Your Tree Falls in Your Neighbor’s Yard for more information.

Take inventory. “The last thing you want to be doing after you’ve been affected by a hurricane is to try to remember everything you had in the house,” says Stone. “Having an inventory will make the process of getting through the claim and getting back to normal so much easier.” The Insurance Information Institute’s KnowYourStuff.org is a great place to get started. Keep the inventory in a safe place away from your home.

Haiti

Haiti

Haiti (Haitian Creole: Ayiti, French: Haïti) is a Caribbean country that occupies the western one-third of the island of Hispaniola. The eastern two-thirds of Hispaniola is occupied by the Dominican Republic. The North Atlantic Ocean lies to the north, while the Caribbean Sea lies to the south. Haiti is a country with a troubled, but also a revolutionary and exciting past, and its future still remains uncertain. Though Haiti has faced hard times during the passed decades, Haiti's tourism industry that bustled in the 60s to the 80s is returning. Resorts and investments are transforming this misunderstood gem into a Caribbean tourist spot once again

Pure Water for Haitians

Pure Water for Haitians

 

We are so proud to announce our collaboration with The Pure Project Organization! The Pure Project is dedicated to improving the lives of Haitians by providing them with the means for sanitary water.

How can you be part of this collaboration?

Le’w Ayisyen will be creating a dedicated “Pure Project Collection” containing specialty designs of which 75% of net proceeds will be donated directly to The Pure Project for the purpose of providing biosand filters to households in Haiti. The specialty designs will be available on apparel for men, women and children. Together we can support a great cause and save lives.

We will change lives.

There are 10.6 million people in Haiti. 7.6 million lack access to improved sanitation. Water born diseases kill 1 out of 8 children before they turn 5 years old. Diseases such as cholera, dysentery, E. coli, malaria, typhoid and hundreds of intestinal parasite worms. Bio-sand filter purifies contaminated water and almost eliminates the risk of many water born diseases.

What is a Biosand Filter?

A biosand filter (BSF) is a point-of-use water treatment system adapted from traditional slow sand filters. Biosand filters remove pathogens and suspended solids from water using biological and physical processes that take place in a sand column covered with a biofilm. BSFs have been shown to remove heavy metals, turbidity, bacteria, viruses and protozoa. BSFs also reduce discoloration, odor and unpleasant taste. Studies have shown a correlation between use of BSFs and a decrease in occurrence of diarrhea.

How water is filtered

The concrete Biosand filter is an innovative version of the slow sand filter specifically designed for household use. These filters are built locally using available materials and labor. As with the other types of water projects we support, we are meeting the clean drinking water needs of the region and providing needed jobs. Each community is a full participant in the project.

The Biosand filter is comprised of a container - plastic or concrete - and is about the size of an office water cooler. It has an inset plastic pipe and is filled with layers of sand and gravel. Dirty water is poured into the top of the biosand filter, where a diffuser plate evenly distributes the water over the sand bed layer. The water travels down through the sand bed, passes through multiple layers of gravel, and collects in the plastic pipe at the bottom of the filter. The clean water then exits through the plastic piping for a family to collect in clean containers.
