Over the last few years, Whitehorse has experienced several serious storms that have caused blackouts and significant damage.
Whitehorse Councillor Tina Liu said, with this in mind, now was a good time to revise a checklist on ways to keep your family and property safe as a storm approaches.
“The storms in past years in Whitehorse have been sudden and localised, which makes it essential to have a plan before a storm hits,” Cr Liu said.
“There is a lot you can do to get ready – and stay ready – for a potentially damaging storm. Heed the warnings put out by news outlets, and take them seriously. If a storm does hit your area, you will be better prepared if you have followed Council’s advice.”
