... March 1 through March 7 is severe weather preparedness week
in Illinois... todays subject... severe thunderstorm safety...

Severe thunderstorms pose a threat to life and property. They
produce damaging downburst winds of around 60 mph or greater...
and/or large destructive hail of one inch in diameter or greater.
Flooding rains... frequent cloud to ground lightning... and tornadoes
are also possible in severe thunderstorms.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means severe thunderstorms are possible
in the next few hours and to be prepared.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning means a thunderstorm capable of
causing damage and injury has been sighted or detected by radar. Go
indoors and stay away from windows. Heading into the basement or the
lower level is encouraged as some storms have winds as strong as
tornadoes and some can intensify rapidly and produce a tornado.

On June 30 2014... there was a large complex of storms that moved
across northern Illinois resulting in over 250 reports of severe
winds and damage. This served as a reminder to take severe
thunderstorm warnings seriously.

Very large hail... Golf Ball size or larger... is both destructive and
dangerous and can occur with violent storms.
