that threatens the area where you live? What safety precautions do you have for it? Here in Ohio there is always the threat of tornadoes or severe wind, electrical storms. Just this past week there was an thunderstorm warning announced. The next day it was reported that a student at one of the universities was struck by lightning as he was walking through the parking lot. He was last reported in critical condition with life threatening injuries. Just yesterday an electrical storm came through with big bolts of lightning and I shouted for a couple of people to take cover because I feared they were going to get struck. When severe weather is reported coming our way I make sure that I have flashlights ready in case there is a power outage. The next thing I do is peep out the window. I'll see tree branches fall, dumpsters topple over, overflowing sewers and cars going what seems like 50 miles an hour with windshield wipers going just as fast. There are a couple of safe spots in our basement to go to if danger is present. What plan do you have in place for severe weather conditions?
