During a cycloneFirst of all, try to stay calm. If communications systems are still working, monitor local media to get up-to-date
information. Evacuate immediately if asked to do so. If asked to remain in your accommodation, keep away from windows and doors.
Go to an interior room on the lowest level of the building (winds are stronger at higher altitudes) and do not move.
The center of a cyclone is called the "eye", in which no wind blows. Therefore if the wind stops, wait
for official confirmation that the storm is over. Wind may resume blowing in the opposite direction.
After a cycloneIf you are indoors, stay inside until officially informed that the cyclone is over. If you are evacuated,
wait for official orders before going back to your accommodation. Wait for official clearance before drinking tap water.
You may have to use boiled water, as cyclones usually destroy water supplies and sanitation infrastructures.
Check to make sure there are no gas leaks. If you notice the smell of gas, open the windows, and leave the premises.
If possible, cut the gas tap and call special services. Check electrical installations. If you notice sparks,
stripped wires or a burnt smell, turn off electricity and call special services. Check that there are no damages to
water or sewage pipes. If you suspect any damage, do not use the bathrooms or tap water and call a plumber. If the cyclone
caused a flood, follow Netglobers instructions related to floods.
