Public Information Statement

Statement as of 5:45 AM CDT on March 27, 2015


... This is severe weather awareness week...

The National Weather Service along with Nebraska emergency management
and the Iowa Homeland security and emergency division have declared
March 23 through March 27 as severe weather awareness week. Each day
during the awareness week will feature information about a different
severe weather related topic.

The topic for today is:

Lightning and flood threats

While much of the focus during severe weather is on tornadoes... wind
and hail... there are actually more deaths caused each year by
flooding and lightning... which are also commonly associated with
severe weather. If you hear thunder or see lightning... head
inside immediately! When thunder roars go indoors! Heavy rainfall
from thunderstorms can quickly cause rivers to overrun their banks
and cause street flooding in urban settings. Remember... if you
encounter a flooded roadway... do not drive or walk into it. Turn
around Don/T drown! Visit weather.Gov/lightningsafety and
weather.Gov/floodsafety or more safety tips and information.
