Squalls in Multihulls

I have only been multihull for a year, but aside from Sailingdog, all the squall advice seem to be monohull-oriented. My weather experience to date does not justify lashing down everything, and preparing to abandon ship. Securing hatches, clearing the deck, and reducing sail seem appropriate, as does running or reaching. What about heaving to or just hauling everything down and waiting in the salon? I would love to hear something from a multihull owner with squall expertise.
