Large Animals
Before Event During Event After Event Resources

During the Event

  • Shelter large animals in a barn or shed. Do not leave them outdoors, where they may be injured by flying debris or flooding.
  • If an indoor shelter is not available, keep animals on high ground to protect them from rising water or flood waters.
  • Make every attempt possible to keep the animals calm during the storm. The sound of high winds and other extraneous noises may frighten the animals and cause injury to themselves.
