Wind & Hail

Severe Weather Preparedness Week - wind & hail graphic

Wind & hail are no joke. Severe thunderstorms can bring winds greater than 60 mph and large hail that can damage and be a threat to life and property. Did you know that straight line winds are much more common than tornadoes and can be just as deadly? Winds greater than 60 mph can capsize boats and can blow over trees. Wind & hail weather safety tips can be found in any of the Severe Weather Preparedness Week information. Both wind and hail can be found leading up to and including tornado events and accompany lightning. Be prepared by signing up with your favorite method to receive weather alerts and seek shelter inside your home or substantial building or hard-topped car if caught outdoors.
