Weather Emergencies

Severe weather can happen anytime

From Spring Tornadoes, Summer Thunderstorms or Winter Storms, one should always be prepared.  Please take the time to review the following information about severe weather and also review our Emergency Procedures

Thunderstorms are very prevalent during the summer months in Indiana. They can produce large hail, flash floods, heavy rain, lightning, strong winds, and tornadoes. Thunderstorms can last only a few minutes, but have the strength and power to cause a great amount of damage.

Tornadoes are violent rotating cylinders of air that can reach speeds in excess of 300 mph, be more than a mile wide, and cover up to around 50 miles during their short path of destruction. Tornadoes can cause millions of dollars worth of damage and rip buildings off their foundations leaving only debris in their wake. They can appear suddenly and with little warning.

Winter Storm warnings are reported by your local weatherman. They can be predicted with a reasonable amount of accuracy. Winter storms can bring a lot of snow, sleet, freezing rain, sub-zero temperatures, lots of ice and even blizzards.
