Stay safe during bad weather
Storms are really common during the summer in Henry County and July is a prime month for pulse thunderstorms. The average storm only lasts about thirty minutes, but it can cause severe damages due to strong winds, hail and lighting strikes.
Listen to the local news or the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather radio to see when can you expect severe weather.
When should you seek shelter? If there is a watch or a warming issued for severe thunderstorms that means that you should head or stay indoors, since sever weather is imminent in your area. Avoid using any of your electronics, appliances, etc. until the storm has passed. Keep a safe distance away from windows and glass doors. Don’t forget about your furry friends, and bring them inside too.
