Severe Weather, Hail


Severe Weather Preparedness 2022: Hail

Thunderstorms bring with them the risk of high winds and hail. Hailstones can cause injury, damage to property, & create dangerous conditions, even if they are only a fraction of an inch.

Consider these Things as you Prepare for Hail:

  • You and Your Loved Ones. Do not go outdoors in a hailstorm. Seek shelter and stay away from windows. If you are trapped in your vehicle, cover yourself with a blanket in case the hail breaks the windows.
  • Your Home and Property. Hail at its worst can become the size of a softball and reach speeds of 100+ mph. Hail can break windows, dent cars, and cause other damage to your property.
  • Your Pets and Animals. Always include your pets and livestock in your emergency preparedness plans. Get your animals in a sheltered place or bring them indoors.
