Identify the strongest room for safe shelter


If the safest place for you to be during a storm is to 'shelter-in-place', whether that's at home, work, or school, the strongest room will provide the best protection from falling debris. The strongest room in the house is usually the smallest room, on ground level, without external windows and the safest place to shelter during severe storms.

During a storm, stay well away from glass doors and window, in case flying debris crashes through the glass. Securely lock external windows and doors to prevent water entering and intense winds damaging inside your house.
