Thunderstorms - Uxbridge MA
This past weekend, we experienced a ton of rain and wind in the Uxbridge area and we are expecting some more in the next few days.
Preparing for a thunderstorm
Learn about your community's emergency warning system for severe thunderstorms.
Discuss thunderstorm safety with each member of your household, especially children.
Pick a safe spot inside for the family to gather during a storm. This spot should be away from any windows or glass doors.
Make a checklist of any items you may want to bring inside or put in the shed before the storm comes.
Protect your fur babies the same way you would protect the rest of your family. Keep them indoors during any heavy rain and wind.
Always have a first aid kit handy.
During a thunderstorm
Keep updated on the news, listen for emergency updates, and keep your eye on the sky.
If you see any changes to the sky, or hear any weather reports and you're planning on doing anything outside, it's best to postpone your outdoor plans for another day.
If you're outside when it begins to thunder, seek shelter ASAP.
If you can hear thunder, you're close enough to be in danger of lightning. The American Red Cross says "if thunder roars, go indoors!
DO NOT take a bath or shower during a thunderstorm. If your house is struck by lightning and you are in the shower, you are at risk of being struck.
After a thunderstorm or heavy rains
Stay away from any storm damaged areas.
Keep a close eye on your pets
NEVER drive through a flooded street. You may not know how deep the water will be.
