Severe Weather Warnings

Making a plan for when severe weather strikes.

The type of severe weather warnings you receive depends on what area of the world you live in. Whether it’s a tornado, thunderstorm, hurricane, winter storm, or flood, does your family know what to do when bad weather is on the way? You see the news stories of devastation left behind from storms and you don’t want to be the next victim.

Don’t ignore weather warnings. Different from a weather watch, which just means there’s the potential for bad weather, a warning means the bad weather has been sighted, it’s on its way, and you need to take cover.

Here’s what to do when severe weather strikes.


The safest place to be in a tornado is underground. Go to the basement, a storm shelter, or the lowest level of your home. Stay in your home’s innermost room, hallway, or closet, away from windows, which could be shattered by wind or hail. Wear a bike or football helmet if you have one. Put your pets on a leash and keep them close by.

If you’re in a car, find a sturdy building for shelter. If no buildings are near, get down in a deep ditch, far away from your car.


Severe thunderstorms have the potential of creating large hail, strong winds, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning strikes, and flash flooding. When a severe thunderstorm warning is issued, take shelter in an inner room in a sturdy building. Do not take a bath or shower when there’s a threat of thunder and lightning.

Driving in a bad storm is dangerous. Exit the highway and find a place to park. Turn on your emergency flashers until the storm lets up.

If you’re outdoors and can hear thunder, you’re in danger of being struck by lightning. To avoid lightning, stay away from high ground, tall trees, bodies of water, metal objects, and small metal buildings.


Hurricanes produce large storm systems that bring threats of strong winds, heavy rains, flooding, storm surges, tornadoes, landslides, and rip currents. And they don’t just harm areas directly on the coast. Areas up to 100 miles inland can be affected. In many cases, residents in the path of the storm are ordered to evacuate. For maximum safety, know your evacuation route and shelter options before you need them.

If evacuation isn’t an option, take cover in a storm shelter or interior room without windows when the storm hits. Before the storm arrives, gather food, water, medications, and other essential supplies to last you and your pets at least three days. Stay tune to weather alerts and updates. Board up windows and bring any outdoor furniture inside.

Winter Storms

With winter storms come snow, cold temperatures, ice, and high winds. Keep you and your family safe in a winter storm by taking the proper precautions. Stay indoors and avoid driving. Be prepared for a power outage that could last hours or days by stocking up on non-perishable food, medications, batteries, and a flashlight. Whenever you have to go outdoors, make sure you are layered with warm clothing. If you become trapped in your car, stay inside until help arrives. Know the signs of frostbite and hypothermia and how to treat them.


Flooding may result from rain, snow, a storm surge, or dam overflow. Though some floodwaters rise slowly, others come with little to no warning. If told to do so, evacuate the area, and never try to drive or walk through floodwaters, as you or your car may be swept away. If it’s too late to evacuate, move to higher ground or a higher level of your home and stay put until help arrives.
