Around Henry and Spalding Counties, we’ve been having a very rainy and stormy summer. Here are some tips to keep your family and your home safe when severe weather hits.

  • Develop and practice an evacuation plan ahead of a severe weather event. (Don’t forget to have a plan for your pets too)
  • Stay out of flood waters, if possible, and do not drive into flooded areas. Even water only several inches deep can be dangerous.
  • There is no place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm, and if you can hear thunder, you are within striking distance of lighting
  • Stay away from windows and doors
  • Turn off computers and unplug appliances
  • If possible, don’t run the dishwasher or washing machine during a storm
  • Wait at least 30 minutes after hearing thunder before leaving your house or shelter
