...Safety Rules For Severe Summer Storms...

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued by the National
Weather Service. The following information and safety rules may
save your life.

A watch means that weather conditions are favorable for the
development of severe thunderstorms and possibly tornadoes.
During a watch, you should go about your normal business, but
stay updated on the latest weather developments and be prepared
to go to a place of safety.

A warning means that severe thunderstorms or tornadoes have been
reported, or have been detected by radar. People in the warned
area should seek shelter immediately.

Severe thunderstorms produce damaging winds, large hail, heavy
rains, and deadly lightning. Watch for signs of an approaching
storm. Keep a NOAA weather radio with you.

Avoid areas prone to flash flooding such as dry creek beds, small
streams and dips in the road.
