Thunderstorm Awareness

Now that the summer has finally arrived, and thunderstorms tend to occur, the Red Cross wants to make you aware of what you should do to keep yourself safe.

  • If thunder roars, go indoors.  Chances are if you hear thunder, you are close enough to lightning.
  • Be aware of storm signs – darkening skies, lightning, and strong winds.
  • Postpone outdoor activities.
  • Take shelter inside a secure building or car.
  • Do not take a bath or use plumbing.
If your community has experienced a disaster, register on the American Red Cross Safe and Well web site to let your family and friends know you are safe. You may also call 1-866-GET-INFO to register yourself and your family.
