Peeking out ofÂ your window, using running water, orÂ even touching concrete wallsÂ â there are soÂ many ordinary things that weÂ doÂ atÂ home during extreme weather, and weÂ donât even think that they could beÂ dangerous toÂ us.

Bright Side wants our readers toÂ beÂ prepared for any situation. For this purpose, weÂ have found out what the most common mistakes are that most people neglect while waiting for bad weather toÂ pass. Make sure toÂ remember them and stay safe!
The problem with candles isÂ that they can also start aÂ fire. And during aÂ severe storm, itÂ might not beÂ possible toÂ contact emergency services. Even ifÂ you are able toÂ contact them, the weather might make itÂ impossible for them toÂ reach your house inÂ time. ToÂ avoid possible dangers, you can use flashlights instead ofÂ candles. They produce even more light and are way safer.
