... Safety rules for severe thunderstorms...

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch number 133 has been issued by the
National Weather Service for all of southwest Indiana and most of
west Kentucky, generally east of the Land Between The Lakes. This
watch is in effect until 800 PM CDT/900 PM EDT. The following
safety tips are being provided in the hope that the broadcast
media will frequently broadcast these messages while the watch
affects their area.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for the
development of severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. If you are in the watch area, keep up to date of the latest
weather information. These storms can develop rapidly, so there
may be occasions when advance warning is not possible.

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

Follow these safety rules:

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

When indoors, stay away from outside walls and windows and go to
an interior room on the lowest level. Avoid using electrical
appliances while the storm is nearby.

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

If swimming or on a boat, you should get to shore as quickly as
possible and find shelter.

A thunderstorm is considered severe when it contains one inch or
larger diameter size hail and/or wind gusts of 58 miles an hour or
greater. A severe thunderstorrm also produces deadly lightning and
very heavy rain which can lead to flash flooding.

Remember, with any severe thunderstorm, there is always the
possibility of tornadoes.
