Continue listening to
local radio or television stations or a NOAA Weather Radio for
updated information and instructions. Access may be limited
to some parts of the community, or roads may be blocked.
Help a neighbor who may
require special assistance - infants, elderly people, and people
with disabilities. Elderly people and people with
disabilities may require additional assistance. People who care
for them or who have large families may need additional assistance
caring for several people in emergency situations.
Stay away from
storm-damaged areas. You may be putting yourself at further
risk from the residual effects of severe thunderstorms.
Watch out for fallen
power lines and report them immediately. Reporting
potential hazards will get the utilities turned off as quickly as
possible, preventing further hazard and injury.
