Be prepared for spring storms L


IGHTNING from thunderstorms kills more people each year than tornadoes or hurricanes, according to the American Red Cross. As spring arrives, make sure you’re prepared to handle storms that come with the changing season. Follow these tips from the Red Cross to stay safe. Stay away from down power lines. Electricity could still be flowing through them. Report them immediately by calling Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative at 1-800-256-6405 or 9-1-1.


Hear thunder? Head inside. If you can hear it, you could be in danger from lightning. Stay indoors at least 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder—a recommen- dation from the National Weather Service. If you’re outside and can’t seek shelter indoors, avoid high ground, water, tall isolated trees, and metal objects like bleachers or fences.


Unplug your electronics. Avoid using electrical items and telephones, which can carry power surges. Keep a battery-powered TV or radio on hand for weather updates.


Delay outdoor activities. If conditions are right for a thunderstorm, postpone the baseball game and stay inside—it doesn’t have to be raining for lightning to strike.
