Residents should use proven methods such as hurricane shutters or impact-resistant windows, said Bill Read, Director of the National Hurricane Center. "It does not protect your windows. At best, it's an inconvenience. At worst, some people have the illusion that they're safe ... and people can get severely hurt."
Taping windows can create larger and deadlier shards of glass when winds blow through a home, said Leslie Chapman-Henderson, president and CEO of Federal Alliance for Safe Homes. "You're wasting your time, your money and you're potentially increasing the danger to your home."
