... Safety rules for severe thunderstorms...

Severe thunderstorms are possible. The following tips are being
provided during the severe weather threat.

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

Make sure you have multiple ways to receive severe weather alerts...
including NOAA Weather Radio... local TV... and smart phone Apps.

In open country... seek shelter and avoid trees which can be targets for
lightning... or knocked over by strong winds.

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

If very high winds threaten and you are in a Mobile home... you should
leave and seek nearby safe shelter.

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

A thunderstorm is considered severe when it contains hail 1 inch
diameter or larger... or wind gusts near 60 mph or greater. A severe
thunderstorm may contain a combination of high winds and hail... as
well as very heavy rain and deadly lightning.

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