How to handle Spring storms?

Mark Twain once said, “In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.”

We’re here to say that statement is true to this day! A few weeks ago it was freezing temperatures. Last week we experienced severe storms that caused damage to homes and businesses in our community. Today it’s beautiful, with an overwhelming amount of pollen but it is beautiful so we won't complain. We’ve said all of that to say, Spring's weather is unpredictable and you should be prepared in the event of severe weather.

Did you know that under the right conditions, rainfall from thunderstorms causes flash flooding, killing more people each year than hurricanes, tornadoes, or lightning?

We want to remind you…

  1. Stay away from floodwaters. If you come upon a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way.
  2. Turn around, don’t drown. If driving, turn around and go another way. If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  3. Be especially cautious at night when it’s harder to see flood danger.
