Severe Weather Awareness

Severe weather season is upon us having a plan of action when it hits your area could save your life.
IT IS FINALLY SPRING HERE IN ABILENE BUT THAT MEANS AN INCREASED RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER.
SOME OF THE THREATS WE FACE INCLUDE HEAVY RAIN, HIGH WATER, DANGEROUS HAIL, AND DEADLY TORNADOES. SEVERE WEATHER SEASON IS UPON US, BUT WHAT YOU DO BEFORE, AFTER, AND DURING A SEVERE WEATHER EVENT COULD HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE

ACCORDING TO KTAB'S CHIEF METEOROLOGIST SAM NICHOLS, "THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH SEVERE WEATHER AND PEOPLE IS MOST PEOPLE DON'T HAVE A PLAN THEY JUST GET CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF SEVERE WEATHER AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO NOW." WHEN PREPARING FOR SEVERE WEATHER ALWAYS REMEMBER TO THINK OF YOUR PETS."TRY TO TAKE THEM WITH YOUR IF YOU CAN BUT IF NOT BY ALL MEANS PROVIDE THEM SOME KIND OF A SHELTER", SAYS ALLEN BOLT A TRUSTED VETERINARIAN HERE IN ABILENE.
CHILDREN CAN OFTEN BE FEARFUL WHEN IT COMES TO SEVERE WEATHER ITS BEST TO PRACTICE YOUR PREPAREDNESS PLAN AHEAD OF TIME.
ACU'S PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSOR SAYS, "LETTING THEM BE A PART OF IT THE MORE THEY CAN BE A PART OF IT WHEN IT IS NOT A DANGEROUS SITUATION THE MORE THEY WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE WHEN IT IS."
IT IS ALSO A GOOD IDEA TO KNOW WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE CAUGHT OUT IN A STORM.
SAM NICHOLS WARNS, "UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO DIE IN ACCIDENTS WHEN THEY TRY TO DRIVE THROUGH WATER OF UNKNOWN DEPTH AND THAT IS THE PROBLEM. PEOPLE ARE OVER CONFIDENT AND THAT'S WHAT CAUSES MOST DEATHS AND INJURIES AND ACCIDENTS DURING FLOODING SITUATIONS."
DRIVERS SHOULD ALSO BE CAUTIOUS OF HAIL STORMS
"YOUR VISION IS OBSCURED OF COURSE THAT CREATES A TRAFFIC HAZARD OBVIOUSLY YOU NEED TO PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD IF YOU CAN FIND A COVERED THAT'S EVEN BETTER." SAYS SAM.
THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST SEVERE WEATHER IS BEING PREPARED
