Q&A: Riding Out the Storm Safely

How to Stay Safe in Hurricane Sandy's Aftermath

continued...

Discard materials that don't dry out -- mold can cause severe allergic reactions.

If water is in the walls, call a professional water damage service.

Q: When evacuating, how can I stay safe in a car?

Be on the lookout for live wires in the roads and do not drive over them.

Bypass streets submerged in water. Your car could be carried away, even in what looks like low water levels.

Be aware of the threat of the road collapsing. Drive as slowly and steadily as you can.

If your car becomes trapped in the water, abandon it if possible.
