Children and Storms
When preparing for a major storm don't forget to make sure children know the plan and what to do and when. For some kids a bad thunderstorm is enough to keep them up at night so a major storm may cause major fear in little ones. A good idea is to explain to them what is happening with the weather and what the impact is expected to be. The adults should make sure to have plans in place and supplies for the storm depending on how major the storm is planned to be. It would be a great idea to go over this with children so they feel safe and they know what to do. If they are old enough maybe give them a small responsibility like being in charge of their flashlight. The main goal is everyone feels confident and safe in the plan and getting through the storm.
