... Safety rules for severe thunderstorms...

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch or warning has been issued by the
National Weather Service. The following tips are being provided
while the watch or warning is in effect.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for the
development of severe weather in and close to the watch area. If you
are in the watch area... monitor weather conditions closely. These
storms can develop rapidly so there may be occasions when advanced
warning is not possible.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning means a severe thunderstorm has been
observed or indicated by radar. If you are near or in the path of
this storm... take immediate actions to protect life and property.
Follow these safety rules.

In open country... you should seek shelter and avoid trees which can
be targets for lightning. If there is no shelter... go to a ditch or
culvert but beware of rising water or flash flooding.

When indoors... stay away from windows and go to an interior room.

In Mobile homes... you should leave and seek a nearby safe shelter.

If swimming or on a boat... move to shore as quickly as possible and
find shelter.

A thunderstorm is considered severe when it contains one inch or
larger diameter size hail or wind gusts of 58 mph or greater. A
severe thunderstorm may contain a combination of these two elements
as well as very heavy rain and deadly lightning.

Remember... with some severe thunderstorms there is the possibility
of tornadoes.
