...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.

In open country, seek shelter and avoid trees which can be
targets for lightning, or knocked over by strong winds. If there
is no shelter, go to a ditch or culvert but beware of rising
water.

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

If 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 one
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.
