Earthquakes
Earthquakes strike suddenly, without warning and recur in the same places. Earthquake related injuries are often the result of collapsing walls, flying glass and falling objects, not the earthquake itself. Expect aftershocks, which can happen minutes, days, weeks and even months following the initial earthquake.
Residential Fires
All homes are at risk for fire. Unlike most disasters, most fires can be prevented. The most effective way to protect yourself and your home from fire is to prevent a fire from starting.
Flooding
If it has been raining hard for several hours, or steadily for several days, be alert for the possibility of a flood.
A flood watch means a flood is possible in your area.
A flood warning means flooding is already occurring.
Tornadoes
Tornadoes can strike quickly. Watch for tornado danger signs. Learn about your community’s warning system and pick a safe place to go ahead of time. A tornado watch means tornadoes are possible in or near the watch area.
A tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar.
Hurricanes
Strong winds, storm surges and flooding, tornadoes and marine hazards are the greatest threats.
A hurricane watch means threat of hurricane storm conditions within 36 hours.
A hurricane warning means hurricane storm conditions are expected in 24 hours or less.
Thunderstorms
ALL thunderstorms are dangerous because they produce lightning. Strong thunderstorms can produce hail, down- bursts, and straight-line winds, power outages and even tornadoes and floods.
