    Text OSHALERT to 69050. (Available for United States and its territories only.) Alerts will begin on Thursday, July 24, and end Sunday, August 3, or cancel at any time by texting STOP to 69050. Message and data rates may apply. View the Comprehensive Terms & Conditions of this program at www.iss247.com/privacy-policy .

     WEATHER WATCH 

    A watch means that conditions are favorable for severe storm/ tornado development. Take these actions when a watch is issued:

      > Secure items that could be blown away in

    high winds.   > Continue to monitor the weather for any

    changes or additional alerts.   > Be prepared to unplug your electric cord from the

    electric pedestal.   > If camping by your aircraft, make sure it is tied

    down securely.

    NOTE: You may not use “dog leash” tiedowns to secure your aircraft.

     WEATHER WARNING

    A warning means that dangerous weather is threatening the area. It is important for you to monitor weather conditions and not just rely on

    the sirens to be sounded to notify you of imminent severe weather.

    SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING 

    A severe thunderstorm warning is issued when winds reach 58 mph or greater and hail has been measured 3/4 inch in diameter.

    > Take shelter in your camper. > If you are in a tent or small camper (e.g. a pop-up),

    take shelter in your vehicle. > If a shelter or vehicle is not available, find a low

    spot away from trees, fences, and poles, but make sure the spot is not prone to flash flooding. If you cannot avoid trees, try to stay in the area of shorter

    trees. Cover your head with your hands and lie down on the ground.

    TORNADO WARNING 

    A tornado warning is issued when a tornado has been spotted or indicated by radar. County emergency sirens will be activated when a warning has been issued for the area.

    > Move away from your camper and find a ditch, depression, or low area and lie down, covering your head with your hands.

      > As a last choice, secure yourself in your vehicle, with the vehicle running so that the air bags can be deployed (if your vehicle has air bags). Keep your head lower than the vehicle windows and cover your head with your hands.
