Public Information Statement

Statement as of 5:17 AM EDT on April 29, 2016

the National Weather Service Caribou, Maine has declared April 25th
through may 1st as severe weather preparedness week. Each day during
the preparedness week will feature information about a different
severe weather related topic.

New England will quickly transition from early Spring weather to
more Summer like weather patterns over the next several weeks. Along
with the warmer weather comes an increasing threat of thunderstorms,
and with it comes the threat for severe weather. Are you prepared
for severe weather? Do you know where and how to receive forecasts?
Do you know how to receive warnings and watches for severe weather?
Do you know what to do during and after severe weather impacts you?

... Lightning and flood threats...

While much of the focus during severe weather is on tornadoes, wind
and hail; there are actually more deaths caused each year by
flooding and lightning, which are also commonly associated with
severe weather. If you hear thunder or see lightning, head inside
immediately! When thunder roars go indoors! Heavy rainfall from
thunderstorms can quickly cause streams, creeks, and rivers to
overrun their banks, and cause street flooding in urban and country
settings. Remember, if you encounter a flooded roadway, do not drive
or walk into it. More than half of of all flash flooding fatalities
are vehicle related and almost always preventable. Turn around don't
drown! In addition to vehicle flooding, swollen rivers and streams
have very strong currents that can easily overpower a person. Don't
get too close and pay special attention to your childen and pets.
