Nakakaranas ang Bay Area ng malalang panahon. Upang maging handa, sundin ang mahahalagang tip na ito para sa kaligtasan at kahandaan sa bagyo: 

  • Tingnan ang iyong mga supply at tiyaking nakahanda ang mga kailangan mo: http://www.sf72.org/supplies.
  • Kumustahin ang mga kaibigan at kapamilyang maaaring nangangailangan ng tulong sa panahon ng bagyo, lalo na ang matatanda, mga may sakit na hindi makaalis ng bahay, o mga kapitbahay na may mga kapansanan.
  • Alisin ang mga kalat at walisin ang anumang dahon sa mga sidewalk at storm drain upang maiwasang bumara ang mga ito.
  • Tumawag sa 3-1-1 para sa mga isyu sa bagyo na hindi maituturing na banta sa buhay. Tumawag sa 9-1-1 para sa mga emergency: www.maketherightcallsf.org 
  • Mag-sign up para sa AlertSF sa pamamagitan ng pag-text ng iyong Zip Code sa 888-777 para sa mga real-time na alertong pang-emergency.
  • Magbibigay ang Public Works sa mga residente at negosyo sa San Francisco ng hanggang
    10 libreng sandbag bago bumagyo at habang bumabagyo. Ang mga ito ay para sa mga ari-ariang madaling bahain. Makukuha ang mga sandbag mula Lunes hanggang Sabado, 8 a.m. hanggang 2 p.m., sa operations yard ng Public Works, sa gate sa Marin Street/Kansas Street. Magdala ng patunay ng address. Nagbebenta rin ng mga sandbag sa maraming lokal na tindahan ng hardware at kagamitan para sa pagpapaganda ng bahay.
  • Kung mawalan ng kuryente, alisin sa saksak at patayin ang mga appliance. Mag-iwan ng isang ilaw na nakabukas upang malaman kapag bumalik na ang kuryente.
  • Iwasang gumamit ng mga kandila dahil maaaring magdulot ng sunog ang mga ito, lalo na sa San Francisco kung saan napakaraming gusaling gawa sa kahoy.
  • Ihanda ang mga flashlight at karagdagang baterya.
  • Umiwas sa mga lugar na binabaha at may mga bumagsak na linya ng kuryente, may sasakyan man o naglalakad.
  • Huwag humawak ng de-kuryenteng kagamitan kung ikaw ay basa o nakatayo sa tubig.
  • Makibalita: mag-abang sa KCBS (740 AM o 106.9 FM), sa mga lokal na channel sa telebisyon, o sa social media (@sf_emergency; @sfwater; @sfpublicworks; @sfdph) para sa mga abiso at tagubiling pang-emergency.
