Severe Weather Awareness – Tornado Watches & Warnings

Tornadoes and Severe Thunderstorms usually have two types of notifications.  National Weather Service Meteorologist Pamela Pietrycha says pay attention to the watches and warnings.

Pietrycha says when a Tornado Warning is issued, it is time to take cover.

If you are in a mobile home, go to your storm shelter or a neighbor’s house.

If traveling, drive away from the storm.  If there is not time, try to find a sturdy building.  If that s not possible get into a low area and protect yourself from debris as best you can.

Wednesday we will discuss Lightning awareness and safety.
