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:
If the power is out, use flashlights instead of candles.
Do not use any wet electrical devices.
Do not use gas or coal-burning equipment indoors.
Be careful near damaged buildings. Do not go inside if the structure is unsteady.
Keep away from floodwater, power lines and dangerous materials.
