Atlanta Weather Preparedness
No Atlanta apartment resident will forget the 2008 tornado outbreak that affected so many Atlanta apartments, homes and businesses. While the weather in Atlanta, GA delivers plenty of sunshine for Atlanta apartment renters to enjoy, the occasional storm is easier to bear when residents are better prepared.
Evaluate your living space and work area. Have a plan for where you want to be when the sirens go off, a place or room away from windows, overhead storage and fully enclosed within the property. The lowest level of an apartment or townhome is best.
Keeping an emergency kit ready with food, water and prescription medications can help limit the ill effects of a tornado on your peace of mind. Include enough water and food for 3 days for each person. Also, don’t forget Fido! Make sure pets are ok too, keep food and water for them. Rotate the items so nothing expires.
Maintain an up to date renters’ insurance policy. After a storm, the last thing you should worry about is replacing your possessions. Having a backup plan like insurance can ease the stress of rebuilding your life. Residents are responsible for their own property in an Atlanta apartment rental.
