Severe Weather Preparedness 2022: Thunderstorms, Pt. 2

Preparing for a Thunderstorm:

  • If you see lightning or hear thunder, SEEK SHELTER INDOORS immediately.
  • Stay indoors for 30 MINUTES AFTER the last clap of thunder or flash of lightning.
  • STAY AWAY from windows and doors.
  • STAY AWAY from running water.
  • DO NOT touch metal or use electronic devices that are plugged in.
  • STAY AWAY from natural lightning rods and elevated locations.
  • Vehicles are NOT an ideal shelter, but they are safer than being out in the open.
  • If you are driving, PULL OVER AND PARK.
  • DO NOT touch any metal or electronics in your vehicle.
