Do you know what to do during a severe storm?
Storms can happen out of nowhere, especially during the Summer, so it is important that you and your loved ones understand what to do if a severe storm rolls in that looks like it could be potentially dangerous.
First, if you are outdoors seek out shelter. While the rain may get you wet that shouldn't be your main concern when dealing with a large storm. Wind speeds normally rise during large storms and flying debris can be dangerous.
Second, if you can't get to shelter, even a car will do, the best thing you can do is find cover in a low point. Depending on the storm this will protect you from winds, lightning (due to you going to a lower altitude), and even tornadoes. One of the best things you can do if you are caught out with a tornado baring down on you is to find a ditch and curl up in it, protecting your face and head.
Lastly, be sure to listening to news stations on the radio or television to understand the severity of the storm. Be on the look out for tornado watches and warnings.
