24 Hour Generator Hotline
(844) 376-9374

Colonial Generators is tracking hurricanes and tropical storms all season long. Both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have made landfall with unprecedented wind speeds that have impacted power supplies in the affected regions.

Traditionally the full hurricane season lasts from June 1 to November 30. In preparation for hurricane season, Ready.gov recommends advance storm preparation. These storm safety guidelines include:

  • Removing damaged trees and limbs that could damage your home due to hurricane winds;
  • Securing loose gutters, downspouts and clearing debris from both;
  • If necessary, reinforcing roof, windows and doors – including garage doors;
  • Purchasing a portable generator or installing a generator for use during power outages.

In addition, both Ready.gov and the National Hurricane Center offers recommendations for emergency kits, emergency alerts, and even how major storms can impact your pets.

Colonial Generators has also simplified storm readiness for homeowners. With a wide range of Cummins, Generac, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton products, Colonial Generators’ expert team can guide you through selection, purchase and installation – including installs in one day or less.
