THINGS TO KNOW TODAY, sharing from the OKC Fire Dept
• There has been plenty of early warning about the possibility of severe weather today, including potential tornadoes. Now it is up to you to be prepared.
• There are no public storm shelters in OKC. Watch this if you’re not sure what to do when tornado sirens activate – http://www.okc.gov/prepare/#pubshelters
• Fire Stations in Oklahoma City are NOT public shelters.
• If you hear a tornado siren in OKC, it means that there is a threat nearby or approaching your location. Take shelter immediately!
• Hail is possible today – Do NOT park under bridges or overpasses. This causes a very dangerous traffic problem and delays first responders who are trying to get to people in need of help.
• Power lines down – Do not drive over downed power lines. Do not touch downed power lines or anything else they are touching (such as fences or cars). Stay completely away from downed lines.
• Do not drive into high water. If you can’t see the street below, you should not drive through it.
