Damaging Thunderstorm Winds
- In this situation, the tornadoes and thunderstorms will move quickly. So, you will need to begin monitoring the weather and gathering children and friends/relatives who need assistance getting to shelter when a tornado or severe thunderstorm watch is issued.
- Power failures are likely and some could last an extended period of time. Charge your phone and computer throughout the day but take then off the charger before the storms arrive.
- Get some extra cash from the ATM and fill your fuel tank (especially if you have an EV).
- Make sure your shelter area is ready for people.
- Remember to wear shoes into shelter.
