Before a Thunderstorm

  • Listen to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio or to commercial radio or television newscasts for the latest information.
  • Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage. Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  • "If thunder roars, go indoors." No place outside is safe when lightning is in the area.
