AWEFUL THANE :: Prevention and Mitigation

Even during this time it seems AWFUL.  It will become a powerful storm and  cause havoc for Chennai.  Precautionary measures need to be initiated now itself. Some time it may become CAT 2 storm. Government must gear up all necessary precautions before landfall to avoid live and property loss. Whether it will fizzle out or strike precaution measures are safety measures.
I pray Tamilnadu Government officials and general public to be prepared to face the storm.
  1. Store food and water.
  2. Tighten all loose bound structures in your house.
  3. Don't touch wet electrical appliances and keep away from electrical circuits.
  4. Stay out of the building if flood water enters the building and
  5. Be prepared to be evacuated to higher {KNOWN] places. 
  6. Avoid walking or driving through flood waters.
  7. Bring valuable things in a secure place well after the first caution notice.
  8. Keep battery powered lights for use during nights.
  9. Monitor weather warnings / weather alerts for better preparedness     .
        While natural hazards cannot be controlled, the vulnerability to these
hazards can be reduced by planned mitigation and preparedness measures.
