If you have storm windows (impact windows) make sure they are securely closed.
If you have the storm shutters (do you still have those?) they must be closed and locked. It may hard to do but it necessary!
If you are not in the area ask a neighbor to check your apartment. Winds may be of more than 40 miles per hour.
