Don't bother with taping up windows. Study after study finds this practice futile, at best, and actually a potential hazard, as glass can then break into bigger, more lethal wedges.

Disastersafety.org recommends to shut the doors on hurricanes, and putting up shutters - or boarding up (as a last resort) - over windows well in advance, so not to do so when rushed.
Quote:



Protect windows and doors

If you have shutters, monitor weather conditions to ensure you have enough time to deploy them before the storm hits your area.
Use plywood in place of shutters only as a last resort.
Use 1/2 in. to 3/4 in. CDX plywood available in 4 ft x 8 ft sheets. Plywood should not be used to cover openings larger than 4 ft x 8 ft unless additional framing is added. Use two layers of 3/8-in. material to obtain the same effect as one layer of 3/4-in. material. Orient Strand Board (OSB) is not recommended.

Note: Taping windows provides no protection and wastes time.
