Be prepared, be careful, and be safe. Be aware of the weather forecasts and plan accordingly. Avoid driving on roads with standing or flowing water. Stay inside and away from windows if you see lighting or hear thunder. Remember – if you can hear thunder, then lightning is close enough to strike. Tornadoes may also occur depending on the storm’s characteristics, so be ready to evacuate to the innermost room on the lowest floor of your home. And most importantly, have a plan in place so that if a situation becomes unsafe you can leave.
