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.
