Tornados and strong thunderstorms are common in Oklahoma City, OK. The agents at Freeland Insurance are well aware of the dangers that come along with these storms and work diligently to help their clients protect their vehicles at all times. It’s important to know how to protect your vehicle if you find out a storm is heading your way.
Park Away From Trees Or Buildings
If you aren’t at home and don’t have access to a garage or carport, park away from trees, buildings, and other objects that could be blown over or thrown around by high winds. While you won’t have any protection from hail damage, being parked a safe distance away from large objects will prevent them from falling onto your vehicle.
Park In A Garage, Carport, or Other Covered Area If Possible
If you have access to a garage or carport, use it. If a carport is available, pull in as far as possible to prevent the wind from blowing things under it. In some cases, being able to park alongside a building that can act as a block against the wind may also be beneficial. If you are in a public lot, avoid blocking fire lanes and other areas designated for emergency vehicles.
