Storm Safety Tips
We may all love watching a good thunderstorm, but it’s important to know that storms can always be potentially dangerous. Follow these tips to stay safe during a severe storm:
- Remember that all thunderstorms all have lightning, so it’s best to stay indoors. Just because you don’t see lightning doesn’t mean it’s not there; when there’s thunder, lightning always follows.
- During storms, stay away from windows and avoid bathing or showering. In the case of severe thunderstorms or tornadoes, make sure that you have an emergency kit prepared for your family. It’s also important to know your evacuation plan as well.
- Remember the saying “turn around, don’t drown” anytime you see possible flooding. Never attempt to drive through moving water, because it doesn’t take much to carry your car away.
- Flood waters can also cover roads so much that they could be completely washed away, yet you would never know until it’s too late.
