10 Severe Weather Safety Tips for RV Travelers April 29, 2014

Thanks for visiting and enjoy all the information! RV.Net Blog Admin

1. Get a NOAA weather radio http://goo.gl/80raFg and put charged backup batteries inside it.

We use Sanyo Eneloop http://goo.gl/8BUE0Y rechargeable batteries.A weather radio is always a wise investment in severe weather safety.

2. Develop a disaster plan for you and your family.

3. Identify a safe place for you to take storm shelter.

4.Know the county in which you are visiting, so that you can get accurate weather information.

5. It only takes two feet of water to float away most cars. Do not drive into a flooded area.

6. Respect severe thunderstorm winds, as they can reach speeds of 100 to 150 MPH faster than some hurricanes.

7. 30/30 Rule – if the time between lightning strikes and thunder is less than 30 seconds, you need to take shelter.

8. Do not try to outrun a tornado in a vehicle; instead you should take shelter immediately.

9. If caught outside during a tornado, lie flat on the ground and cover your head with your hands – most deaths and injuries during a tornado are caused by flying debris.

10. No place is totally safe during a tornado, but your best option is usually underground.

I feel this is important with all the very severe weather the country is had of late, No matter where you are you can get into serious trouble from the weather. When i have traveled with my cousin he will not leave the driveway without his NOAA radio and if you watch any news clips of all that has happen or has happen only because of weather you will realize how dangerous it can be.

All you can do is try and be safe, so getting a simple alarm radio like these and many others on the internet or Radio shack and other locations it is simple. So save your self and your family the easy way, and then get outside and enjoy.

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
