JUST like other weather events, strong winds can be dangerous.

With winds off the coast expected to reach between 20 to 30 knots today, boaties are warned to stay safe if taking to the water.

For those on the land, securing objects that could become airborne is also important.

Garbage bins, patio furniture, grills and other items should be moved inside the house or garage until the wind subsides.

Residents should also monitor trees that may become dangerous and fall.

Falling branches can also be hazardous.
