“Yes, this is going to be another overnight event. Damaging winds (60-75 mph), large hail (golf balls or bigger) and an isolated tornado are all possible threats tonight. With that in mind, here are a few tips to think about”:
1. Have multiple ways to get warnings. This does not mean have multiple apps downloaded on your phone. This means your cell phone AND a properly programmed NOAA Weather Radio. Something that is going to be turned on, turned up and will wake you if you’re sleeping.
2. Review & PRACTICE your family’s safety plan. Don’t have one? Visit Ready.gov. They have great info on what to do PRIOR to going under a warning, including getting to shelter in a timely manner. Do you live in a mobile home? Maybe you sleep in your shelter while under a Watch.
3. Please treat Severe Thunderstorms Warnings in the same fashion you would a Tornado Warning. Winds blowing in a straight line versus those spinning around in a circle at 70 mph or more can do the same kind of damage. JUST TAKE SHELTER.
