Health Tip: Staying Safe After a Hurricane

(HealthDay News) — Just because a hurricane passes your area doesn’t mean the worst isn’t yet to come, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

To stay safe in the aftermath of a hurricane, the CDC suggests:

  1. If the power is out, use flashlights instead of candles.

  2. Do not use any wet electrical devices.

  3. Do not use gas or coal-burning equipment indoors.

  4. Be careful near damaged buildings. Do not go inside if the structure is unsteady.

  5. Keep away from floodwater, power lines and dangerous materials.
