Lightning strike Know Your Safe Place before extreme weather hits.

When preparing for extreme weather in West Olive, knowing your safe place is a simple but potentially life saving action.  If you are unsure where your safe place is, we share some tips below from The National Weather Service's Spring Safety Campaign, Know Your Safe Place.

Your Safe Place From Tornadoes

Tornadoes can be extremely dangerous so if you receive a tornado warning, take shelter immediately.  Safe places are storm shelters and basements, but if not available, an interior room without windows can also be protective.

Your Safe Place From Lightning

Lightning strikes the U.S. 25 millions times a year, which sometimes results in death or permanent injury.  If you hear thunder or see lightning, take shelter immediately.  Indoors or inside a hard-topped and enclosed vehicle is the safest place.

Your Safe Place From Heat

Heat is the leading cause of weather-related deaths most years.  During extreme heat, stay inside, keep cool, and stay hydrated.

Your Safe Place From Flooding

During high winds, tree damage is expected.  Indoors, away from windows, in an interior room is the safest place.  Prevent damage to your property by trimming loose branches and parking away from trees.
