Garage door hurricane
Don’t forget to lock your garage door before tropical force winds begin.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Even if Irma turns out to be substantially less of an event for South Palm Beach County than originally expected, it’s still a good idea to lock your garage door in place.
If you have a garage door made in the past several years, you likely have a locking system on the tracks. Every garage door system is different, but see the photo above for an example of LiftMaster’s system. Push the bar into place — it will lock itself in its tracks.
Then place a piece of tape over your garage door opener so you remember that you locked it before you try to re-open the doors on Monday.
