Severe Weather Preparedness Week: High Winds

Topic: Staying safe when high winds strike.

Most injuries associated with high winds are from flying debris, so remember to protect your head.  http://www.weather.gov/rah/2016ncswpw

 

Safety tips for seeking shelter during high winds: 

If you are in a small building, school, shopping center:

Go to a pre-designated area such as a basement or the lowest building level.  If there is no basement, go to the center of a small interior room on the lowest level (such as a closet, bathroom, or interior hallway) away from windows.

 

If you are in a manufactured home –  Get out immediately. Mobile homes, even if tied down, offer little protection from tornadoes.

 

If you are outside with no shelter available – Immediately get into a vehicle, buckle your seat belt and try to drive to the closest sturdy shelter.

-Lie in an area noticeably lower than the level of the roadway and cover your head

-Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You are safer in a low, flat location.       http://goo.gl/HeupzV
