Severe Thunderstorm Watch

 A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means that conditions are favorable for the development of a severe thunderstorm.

  • Look for darkening skies, flashes of lightning, the sound of thunder  or increasing wind. These are signs that the storm is approaching.
  • If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to the storm to be struck by lightning! Seek safe shelter immediately.

What is a safe shelter?

  • The safest shelter is a house, large building or sturdy structure.  Do not  go into a shed that stands alone, under a canopy or into a dugout.
  • A hard top car is a safe shelter. Avoid convertibles.  Keep car windows closed  and do not touch anything metal while in the car.
