Take the proper precautions during severe storms!
Severe weather can appear out of nowhere, especially during the hot summer months, because of that it is important that you and your family understand the proper steps that you should take when a severe storm rolls through that has the potential to turn dangerous.
First, if you are not at your home then you should seek out sturdy shelter. Any rain and hail should be secondary concerns when caught out in severe weather. Wind speeds picking up can send debris flying through the air at dangerous speeds.
Secondly, if you are unable to find shelter and are caught out try to find a low point along the ground. Taking cover this way will help avoid potential flying debris, winds, lightning, and even tornadoes. One of the best things you can do if you are caught out with a tornado bearing down on you is to find a deep ditch and curl up in it, focusing protection on your head and face.
Third, if you can't find conventional shelter a vehicle will do, the most important thing is to find somewhere to hunker down and take cover.
Lastly, be sure to stay updated on the severity of the storm via your radio, phone, or television.
