Hey Bloomberg, Tell People To Get Their Outdoor Furniture Secured

That was a warning from a friend from Louisiana the last time a tropical storm approached. The wind can launch stuff left outdoors through windows, perhaps yours and perhaps someone else’s. That stuff, including outdoor furniture, garbage pails, etc. needs to be moved and secured. It’s the first thing people who are used to hurricanes do, I was told, but it isn’t mentioned in the city’s literature. Move it inside, or at least out of the wind.
