Thus, to protect against the threats caused by forecasted strong winds, it is recommended to stay away from light and temporary constructions, buildings and billboards, not to stand under electric poles, wires and tall trees.

Also, taking into account the risk of the rapid spread of fire in a strong wind, fire safety rules must be strictly observed.
