In the context of the world, Estonia is quite windless. However, a couple of times a year, we also have storms. People need to understand that storms can be dangerous. Make sure your family members know how to behave safely in case of a storm.

Before the storm

  • Pick light items and loose furniture from the yard.
  • Park a vehicle in an open space or in a garage.
  • Close all doors and windows.
  • Be prepared for possible power outages. Charge the mobile phone battery, find a flashlight, etc.
  • Store drinking water, food, batteries, and car fuel.

During the storm

  • Stay indoors.
  • Do not drive. If driving is inevitable, fill the car with gas and take a charged mobile phone with you.
  • When driving the vehicle, select the appropriate speed. Remember that obstacles may fall on the road.
  • In the event of heavy rain, stop the vehicle on the roadside and switch on the hazard warning lights.
  • Stay away from fallen power lines. Inform Eesti Energia of them by calling number 1343 and the alarm center by calling number 112.
  • For human injuries and damage posing a direct danger, call the emergency number 112.
