General Weather

LIGHTNING:

All thunderstorms produce lightning and are dangerous.
Lightning often strikes as far as 10 miles away from any rainfall. You are in danger from lightning if you can hear thunder. You are in danger if you can see lightning.
Lightning injuries can lead to permanent disabilities or death. Look for dark cloud bases and increasing wind.
Lightning can travel sideways for up to 10 miles and strike when skies are blue.
Soccer fields are a dangerous place to be during a lightning storm. When lightning is seen or thunder is heard, or when dark threatening clouds are observed, quickly suspend the game and/or practice and move to a safe location.
Avoid standing in an open area, near soccer goals, under a tent, near trees or in water. The safest place during a thunderstorm with or without visible lightning is in a car, but not a convertible.

TORNADOS:

Watch for rapidly darkening skies.
The sound of an approaching tornado is often described as that of an approaching train.
The funnel of a tornado does not have to touch down to cause extensive damage and injuries.
Tornados can produce winds of 300 miles per hour or more.
Most people who are hurt during a tornado are hurt when they are struck by flying debris.
Seek safety in a solid structure, preferably in a basement or in an interior room. If no building is available, lay down in a ditch.
