Windstorm 1 is Hanging Out in the NW | Update 2

Updated 1:15 AM PDT

SUMMARY

Windstorm #1 has arrived with #2 on its heels.  So, what have you  done to prepare yourselves?You say, ‘It’s not that bad. I have been through other storms.’  Here’s why it is so important to start taking matters into your hands and #PrepareNOW (our very own hashtag)

WINDGUSTS IN THE LAST 24 HOURS – Reported by the National Weather Service.

WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT

Why is this such a big event for the Pacific Northwest this year?  Higher than normal winds are blowing through the Pacific jet stream from a remnant of Typhoon Songda, that had reached the highest winds clocking in at 150 m.p.h.

The storm started as a Tropical Storm on October 9th, began picking up speed becoming a Typhoon on October 10th with winds reported as 120 m.p.h.

On October 11th, the storm had been deemed as a Super Typhoon with the highest winds at 150 m.p.h.! The following day, winds have lessened to around 120 m.p.h. becoming a Tropical Storm once again, but not before high winds are being carried around Alaska down to the great Pacific Northwest.

Winds will be considerable less but they will still be around the 40’s and into the 60’s, so please be careful when you go out or if you can stay in

HOW TO PREPARE

HOW WOULD YOU PREPARE?

We took a recent Poll on Twitter asking the question:  “What 2 thing would you do to PrepareNOW for an Emergency?”

The Choices were Camp Outdoors, Bring your Generator indoors, Have water for 48 hours and Gas Up your car.

We had hoped no one would pick bringing in their Generator indoors, but 5% of those polled chose this answer.  Check out the reason why this could be so deadly to you and your family. (Check out the image under “What To Do When the Power Goes Out”)

Thank you to those who participated in the Poll.

WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT

Here are some ideas of what to have on hand to be Prepared for any type of Emergency, excluding Flooding in your home or inhabitable due to an Earthquake or Tornado:

BEING PREPARED FOR 3 DAYS

“We recommend the following to Building an Emergency Preparedness Kit, Preparation Tips and Ways to Protect You/Your Family Before/During/After an Event.  (Info based upon Fire, Police, Emergency Management and EMS articles, posts and knowledge)” – NWFB

Water:   Include one gallon per person for each day. Note:  Water along with food (unless otherwise labeled) should be changed out every six months.

Food:  Include items such as beef jerky, protein and/or granola bars, canned and/or vacuum packed canned foods and other non-perishables. (Don’t forget your pets and their pet food)

Medications:  Don’t forget to keep this on hand and have enough for the time allotted.  The Disaster or Emergency could last longer than 3 days, i.e. Power outages, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, etc.

Battery-powered Radio:  An alternative could be a hand-crank powered radio.  If you use a Battery operated radio, make sure you have extra batteries.

Flashlights:  There are also alternatives out there, such as, Battery-powered or Solar-powered Latterns. Do not use candles.  These lead to fires when candles are left unattended.

Matches:  These could be used to light pilot lights on gas stoves (inside homes- make sure no smell of gas in the air), camping stoves, fires in fireplaces, etc.

First Aid Kit:  Don’t feel like spending time or energy on putting together a Kit? You can visit various stores such as camping supply stores, specialty stores or the American Red Cross.

We recommend the following for a Kit (TIP:  You can visit the American Red Cross @ http://www.redcross.org/prepare/location/home-family/get-kit/anatomy to find a full and a complete list or to purchase your own)

  • Sterile gauze pads of different sizes
  • Adhesive tape
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  •  Elastic bandage
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Soap
  • Splint
  • Alcohol wipes
  • Thermometer
  • Non-latex gloves
  • List of Emergency Phone Numbers (yours)

On October 11th, the storm had been deemed as a Super Typhoon with the highest winds at 150 m.p.h.! The following day, winds have lessened to around 120 m.p.h. becoming a Tropical Storm once again, but not before high winds are being carried around Alaska down to the great Pacific Northwest.

WHAT IS IN THE FORECAST

The first storm is due to hit tonight with another one right behind it on Saturday.  A forecast by The Weather Service issued for Washington State are the following wind speeds:  #Seattle 65 mph, #Everett 70 mph, #Tacoma and Eastside (#Bellevue, #Redmond and #Kirkland) 60 mph, #Bellingham  65 mph and the #WashingtonCoast at 75 mph.
