Loreto has pretty much a perfect weather all year long (a little warmer in the summer but we still like it). But from time to time, a hurricane of tropical storm might come to make things a little more interesting.
Most of the times consequences are limited to generous rain (much appreciated by many) and strong winds.But we’re not here to lie: sometimes things can become a little more hectic.
That’s why you need to know how to prepare your home for any contingency. We’re fortunate enough to live in a time when we can predict when these kind of conditions will manifest, so you can prepare with enough time.
Simple actions to prepare yourself and your home include getting enough supplies for a few days, unplug all electronics and check you home for potential leaks.
But a hurricane is more than water. Wind can be dangerous as well. That’s why you need to move all exterior furniture to a safer place and protect your windows as debris could become a threat to yourself, your family, pets and neighbors.
Consider purchasing a generator as short to medium-term outages are possible and keep yourself informed on the status of the event by local authorities. A satellite phone could come in handy in case you need to reach out to someone in the middle of the event.
Trim your trees and check your plumbing as flash floods are possible and you can do your part to prevent these.
As part of our property management services, we can do all of this and more for you. Even if you’re away and a hurricane or tropical storm hits, our staff is constantly present in the zone making sure your home is in perfect shape before, during and after the event. Loreto Bay is the most important place for us and your home is a part of it, so you can be sure we’ll do everything in our hands to keep it perfect and safe no matter the weather.
We’ll move items and objects, make repairs if needed and work with your insurance in case we need to. We do all this on behalf of homeowners and always thinking about their best interests.
