Safety Tips To Avoid Severe Weather Conditions and Live Doppler Radar Warnings

Here are the Safety Tips To Avoid Severe Weather Conditions and Live Doppler Radar Warnings:

  • Severe weather conditions can be very violent so it is a good idea to stay in a shelter in cases of tornadoes, cyclones, and hurricanes. It is a good idea if communities will have designated places for people to stay in during these periods but in the event that there is none, stay on the basement of your house. According to the live Doppler radar, the force of the wind packed by these weather disturbances strikes at ground level so staying underground is safer.
  • Tsunami can sometimes happen secondary to huge earthquakes so be alert. The force of the wave is too strong to fight so the best thing to do is flee and get to higher ground. Stay as far as you can from the ocean for safety and only get back to your place once the authorities has given instructions.
  • If you find yourself in the middle of a blizzard, do not go out of your vehicle. Stay inside and keep warm but leave a crack on the window for ventilation. However, if you miss out on the live Doppler radar warning and find yourself outside during freezing temperature or snow storms without shelter, what you can do is dig a hole in a snow bank to keep from freezing.
  • In some places, sandstorms can happen and it gets tricky because if you are staying in a dessert, available shelter can be highly unlikely. What you can do is to try to bury yourself in sand as much as you can and wait out the sand storm. Cover your face and don’t breathe the sand in.
  • Now that it is summer, the heat can go very high and certain variables sometimes collide to form heat waves. This is very hard to endure and a lot of people suffer from heat stroke, which can be fatal. In cases of severe heat, the best thing to do is keep your body hydrated. If you do not drink enough liquid, your body is more likely to succumb to the heat. Protect yourself more by staying in an air-conditioned place or under a fan. You can also try soaking a sheet or a towel in water and covering yourself with it to lower the temperature of your body, especially if you are feeling heat exhaustion or going dizzy from the heat.
