If a tsunami strikes, there may not be enough time for an official warning, so it is important to understand natural warnings. If you are at the coast and feel a strong or long earthquake, see a sudden rise or fall of the ocean or hear a loud roar from the ocean, a tsunami may follow. Move quickly to high ground or inland, away from the water. [ Nws.noaa.gov Link ] #TsunamiPrep

Severe thunderstorms can produce damaging hail! The largest hail stone recorded in the US measured 7.9 inches, and a 3 inch hailstone can fall to the ground as fast as 107 mph. Find shelter, stay indoors, and stay away from windows. [ Nws.noaa.gov Link ] #SpringSafety

Never drive around barricades into floodwaters! More than 50% of all flood fatalities are vehicle-related. It only takes 12 inches of water to carry off a small car and 18 inches of water to sweep a larger vehicle away. Turn Around Don’t Drown! tadd.weather.gov #FloodSafety
