Before, during and after a windstorm

What to do after a windstorm
Keep these tips in mind once the wind lets up:

Never touch downed power lines or electrical equipment. If you notice damaged electrical wires or your home’s power has gone out, call your hydro provider right away. Inspect your roof for damage. If you notice any loose shingles on your roof or around your property, you’ll want to arrange to have your roof repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage. If your home has sustained damage, contact your insurance broker. If you need to make a home insurance claim, call your broker or your insurance company’s 24-hour service line. Be prepared to provide some important details about the incident to help make sure your claim goes as smoothly as possible.
