Severe Weather Can Impact Power and Internet Infrastructure

Severe Weather Can Impact Power and Internet Infrastructure

As part of your emergency preparations, it’s good to keep in mind how your local weather might impact the power and internet infrastructure. Whether you live in an area that is prone to hurricanes, rainstorms, high wind events, snowstorms, hail, tornados, other weather events and even wildfires, these events can make power and internet unavailable for a time.

While many of us keep candles, flashlights and portable radios handy for power outages, how many of us plan for internet outages?

We may rely on the internet to communicate with family, friends and others. We may rely on the internet for news, especially notifications during emergencies. While we cannot compensate for all possible circumstances, there are some steps that can be taken beforehand that will help reduce the impact.

Mymove.com has published an article that provides information about preparing beforehand, what to do if the internet is unavailable during a weather event, and links to sites with additional data and resources on related topics.
