Severe Weather Safety Tips
The NOAA weather radio will notify you when a Severe Storm Warning has been issued , including hail, heavy thunderstorms, flash flooding, and tornadoes. The radio will emit a siren-like wail to notify you of important weather information. The wail is loud enough to wake most people from sound sleep. The information broadcast is current and direct from the National Weather Service.
At signs of an approaching storm - towering thunderheads, darkening skies, lightning, increased wind - tune into your portable or vehicle radio and listen for the latest weather information. When severe weather threatens, seek shelter inside a home, secure building, designated shelter, or an automobile. Avoid using the telephone (landlines only) except for emergencies if you are caught outside.
• Do not stand under a tall, isolated tree or telephone pole.
• Avoid silhouetting yourself above the surrounding landscape (don’t stand on a hilltop).
• In an open area, go to a low area like a ravine, gully, or valley.
• On a golf course, remove metal spiked shoes, put down clubs, and avoid electric carts.
• Stay away from metal fences, clotheslines, metal pipes and metal rails.
• Get off or away from open water, wet sand, tractors, metal equipment, batting cages, or small metal vehicles such as bicycles, motorcycles, golf carts, etc.
• If you are caught away from shelter and feel your hair stand on end, lightning may be about to strike. Drop to your knees and bend forward, putting your hands on your knees. Do not lie flat on the ground.
Tornadoes are violent storms that can cause major devastation and loss of life. They can strike without warning and even with warning are very unpredictable. Whenever a tornado warning has been issued, go to the nearest designated safety shelter immedately. At Rushmore Shadows these areas are the Clubhouse and the North Shower House.
In Homes and Structures:
• Seek shelter in the basement and get under heavy furniture if possible.
• In homes without basements, seek shelter in the central part of the house, in a small room on the lowest floor like a bathroom, closet or hallway.
• Keep away from windows and protect yourself from flying debris.
In Resorts/Travel Trailers:
• Travel Trailers are particularly vulnerable and should be evacuated.
• If there is no shelter nearby, leave and take cover on low, protected ground.
• Travel trailer residents are encouraged to preplan for emergency evacuation and shelter with friends, neighbors, or family. Do not wait until the last minute to evacuate. Allow sufficient time to leave your travel trailer and arrive at your shelter area.
• Leave and move away from your vehicle, seek shelter in a nearby building.
• If shelter in a building is unavailable, lie flat in a nearby ditch, ravine or gully.
In Open Country:
• Seek shelter in a nearby ditch, ravine or gully. Cover your head and be aware of possible rising water from the heavy rains that often accompany a tornado.
Flash Flood Safety
Flash flood waters move at incredible speed; can roll boulders, tear out trees and destroy buildings, roads, and bridges. Walls of water can reach 10 to 20 feet in height very quickly and without warning. The moment a flash flood is issued for your area or when you first realize that a flash flood is imminent, act quickly to save yourself. If advised to evacuate, do so immediately as you may have only seconds.
• Go to high ground immediately.
• Get out of dips, canyons, valleys and other low lying areas.
• Avoid areas where water is already flowing heavily. Do not attempt to cross a stream if the water is above your knees or is flowing swiftly.
• Do not drive through flooded areas. Flood water can wash a vehicle from the roadway, and the road under the water may no longer be intact.
• If your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground. Rising flood water may engulf and sweep it away.
• Do not place your vehicle, camper, or tent along streams, creeks, or washes.
• When water threatens your campsite, leave immediately, Do not attempt to save your camper, tent, clothing, or personal belongings.
