During a storm, it's very important to act with caution and take the following steps:

  • Gimme shelter

    Seek appropriate shelter as necessary. Once inside, stay inside, and try to keep a safe distance from windows.
  • Use caution

    If outdoors, be cautious and careful on any slick surfaces.
  • Electricity

    Avoid using electrical appliances and turn off any that you can.
  • On the road

    If you're driving, pull over on the side of the road and be sure to cover your head in case a window shatters.
