... Severe weather safety information...

severe weather is possible in central Indiana tonight. Take this
opportunity to practice your safety plan at work and in the home.
A severe thunderstorm or Tornado Watch means that conditions are
favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms or tornadoes
over the next several hours. Be aware of your environment... and
stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... or your favorite local media
outlet... for possible warnings or statements.

A severe thunderstorm or Tornado Warning... usually issued for
portions of one or more counties at a time... means that severe
weather or a tornado is imminent or occurring. Those in the path
of the storm must seek shelter immediately in a sturdy
structure... away from windows... and below ground if possible.

It is important to remember that severe thunderstorms can and
occasionally do produce tornadoes with little or no advanced
warning. If you hear or see a tornado... or if you feel
threatened... move immediately to shelter. Seconds can save your
life.

Know what to do when a tornado threatens. Follow these simple
safety rules.

In a home or small building... go to the basement or to an
interior room... such a closet or bathroom... on the lowest floor
possible. Get under a sturdy table or bed... or Crouch low and
cover your head with your hands.

In Mobile homes or vehicles... abandon them and go to a sturdy
structure. If there is no such shelter nearby... lie flat in a
ditch... ravine... culvert... or other low spot... and shield your
head with your hands. Never take shelter under a Highway
overpass. Overpasses create a deadly wind Tunnel effect... which
will pull you out from under the bridge.

In large buildings such as schools... factories... hospitals...
nursing homes... and shopping centers... go to the predesignated
shelter area. Interior rooms on the lowest floor offer the most
protection. Avoid areas with large span roofs... as these roofs
are weak and prone to failure.

In high rise buildings... go to a small interior room or hallway...
away from windows.

Stay away from windows... do not open or close them. It will not
increase or decrease the amount of structural damage... and you
will waste valuable time and put your life at risk from flying
debris. Remember... flying debris is the most dangerous hazard
from tornadoes.

Severe thunderstorms can also cause considerable damage from hail
or wind... and can be deadly. If a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is
issued... move to a place of safety... just as you would during a
Tornado Warning. Have a weather radio... radio... or television
nearby to stay alert of any changes to the weather situation.
