... Review of severe weather safety rules...

Severe thunderstorms are expected across portions
of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas late today and tonight.
People across the region should monitor this situation closely.
Watches and warnings will likely be issued later today.
Here are some safety rules to keep in mind when severe weather
is expected or is occurring.

Before severe weather strikes, ensure that you and your family
are fully prepared. In a home or building have a pre-designated
shelter, such as a basement or an interior room or hallway.
Have on hand a disaster supply kit, including a NOAA Weather
Radio, flashlight, radio and a good supply of batteries.

If a severe thunderstorm or Tornado Warning is issued, seek
shelter indoors immediately. A severe thunderstorm is defined
as producing quarter size or greater hail and wind gusts of
58 mph or more. Today hail to the size of baseballs is possible
with the most intense storms.

Tornadoes often form very rapidly from severe thunderstorms. If
you are in a Tornado Watch, and a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is
issued for your area, monitor local conditions closely and be
ready to take quick action to save your life.

Remember that lightning is a thunderstorms most under-rated
killer. Postpone outdoor activities if thunderstorms are
imminent. This is the best way to avoid being caught in a
dangerous situation.

Automobiles offer good protection from lightning, although
moving indoors is best. Even inside, lightning can kill by coming
through the phone lines, plumbing and electric lines.
Therefore do not use computers, telephones or other hand held
appliances during a storm.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio or television
for the latest on this developing severe weather event.
