PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE

...NEBRASKA SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK CONTINUES...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN HASTINGS NEBRASKA HAS DECLARED MARCH
23RD THROUGH MARCH 27TH AS SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK. WE HOPED
YOU HAVE LEARNED VALUABLE INFORMATION THIS WEEK ABOUT HOW TO PREPARE
FOR AND STAY SAFE WHEN SEVERE WEATHER STRIKES.

LIGHTING 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 HEAR
LIGHTNING...HEAD INSIDE IMMEDIATELY! WHEN THUNDER ROARS...GO
INDOORS!

HEAVY RAINFALL FROM THUNDERSTORMS CAN QUICKLY CAUSE RIVERS TO
OVERRUN THEIR BANKS AND CAUSE STREET FLOODING IN URBAN SETTINGS.
REMEMBER...IF YOU ENCOUNTER A FLOODED ROADWAY...DO NOT DRIVE OR WALK
INTO IT. TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN!

VISIT WWW.LIGHTNINGSAFETY.NOAA.GOV OR WWW.FLOODSAFETY.NOAA.GOV FOR
MORE LIGHTNING AND FLOODING TIPS AND INFORMATION.
