Hail Safety Tips

 

v     Be aware of bad weather. Listen for warnings on TV and radio.

v     Stay away from windows

v     Take cover immediately

      If outside, substantial structures and highway overpasses (out of traffic lanes) offer the best hail protection. An awning, a gas station overhang, or even an unexposed side of a building can also offer protection.

      If in a car, pull off the road preferably under a bridge

         Vehicles offer good protection from hail up to about golf ball size, but significant windshield and body damage can result with hail larger than golf balls

         Carry a blanket in your car to protect you from shattered windshields
