Spring Storms: How to Stay Safe and Prepared 

When storms occur, there are ways to stay safe. 

The National Weather System recommends different ways to stay safe during and after the storm. Here are a few tips:

During the Storm:

  • Use your battery-operated NOAA Weather Radio for updates.
  • Avoid contact with corded phones. Cordless/Cellular phones are safe to use.
  • Avoid contact with electrical equipment or cords.
  • Stay away from windows and doors.
  • Unplug appliances and electrical items, like computers. Power surges from lightning can cause serious damage.

After the Storm:

  • Never drive through a flooded roadway.
  • Stay away from places where storm-damage has occurred to stay out of harm's way.
  • Stay away from downed power lines and report them immediately.
  • Call 9-1-1 if you need immediate assistance or if anyone has been hurt from the storm. 

When severe weather damages happen, call SERVPRO® of Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties to help clean up after the storm.
