Severe thunderstorms produce damaging winds, destructive hail, deadly lightning and very heavy rain. For your protection, move to an interior room on the lowest floor of your home or business. Heavy rains flood roads quickly so do not drive into areas where water covers the road. If you are in the path of this storm, prepare immediately for large hail and deadly cloud to ground lightning. People outside should move to a shelter, preferably inside a strong building and away from windows. Torrential rainfall is also occurring with this storm, and may lead to flash flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded roadways.
