HOEVEN PROCLAIMS SEVERE SUMMER WEATH Bismarck. ND - April 20, 2009 - Governor John Hoeven today pro- claimed April 20 24 Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week. One week, every April, is set aside to focus attention on severe summer weather and the need for the public to be informed and prepared for it. Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week encourages the public, businesses, schools, and gov- ernment agencies to focus on being prepared and being informed about severe summer weather. Severe summer storms can cause damaging winds, hail. rural fires, flash flooding, hazardous materials releases, and power outages. Experience has demonstrated that a well-informed and prepared public can better'cope with and survive life threatening sever summer storms. Lightning/thunderstorms When thunder roars, go indoors When to Seek Safe Shelter: Lightning can strike as far as l0 miles from the area where it is raining. That's about the distance you can hear thunder. If you can hear thunder, you are within striking distance. Seek safe shelter immediately. Outdoor Activities: Minimize the risk of being struck. If you are boat- ing or swimming, get out of boats and away from the water, get to land and find shelter immediately. Most light- ning deaths and injuries occur in the summer. Where organized outdoor sports activities take place, coaches, camp counselors, and other adults must stop activities at the first roar of thunder to ensure everyone time to get a large building or enclosed vehi- cle. Leaders of outdoors events should have a written plan that all staff are aware of and enforce. Indoor Activities-Things to Avoid: Inside building, stay off corded phones, computers, and other electri- cal equipment that put you in direct contact with electricity. Stay away frojn pools, indoor or outdoor, tubs, showers, and other plumbing. Buy sure suppressors for key equipment. Install ground fault protectors on cir- cuits near water or outdoors. When inside, wait 30 minutes after the last strike, before going out again. Helping a Lightning Strike Victim: If a person is struck by light- ning, call 911 and get medical care immediately. Cardiac arrest and irregularities, bums, and nerve dam- age are common in cases where peo- ple are struck by lightning. However, with proper treatment, including CPR if necessary, most .victims survive a lightning strike. You are in no danger helping a lightning victim. The charge will not affect you[ Thunderstorms and lightning are dangerous. With common sense, you can greatly increase your safety and the safety of those you are with. At the first clap of thunder, go a large building or fully enclosed vehicle and wait 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder to back outside. Extreme Heat Stay indoors as much as possible and limit expo.sure to the sun. Stay on the lowest ~]oor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available. Consider spending the warmest part of the day in public buildings such as libraries, schools. movie theaters, shopping malls, and other community facilities. Circulating air can cool the body by increasing the perspiration rate of evaporation. Eat well-balanced. light, and regular meals. Avoid using salt tablets unless directed to do so by a physician. Drink plenty of water. Persons who have epilepsy or heart. kidney, or liver disease; are on fluid- restricted diets; or have a problem with fluid retention should consult a doctor before increasing liquid intake. Limit intake of alcoholic beverages. Dress in loose-fitting. lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible.

Check on fam- ily, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone. Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. Avoid strenuous work during ~he warmest part of the day. Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat. and take frequent breaks. Flash Flood - Turn around. don't drown. Here's what you can do once flooding has started to keep your family safe. Fill bathtub~ sinks and jugs with clean water in case water becomes contaminated. Listen to a battery- operated radio for the latest storm information. If local authorities instruct you to do so, turn off all util- ities at the main power switch and close the main gas valve. If told to evacuate your home. do so immedi- ately. If the waters start to rise inside your house before you have evacuated, retreat to the second floor, the attic, or if necessary, the roof. Floodwaters may carry raw sewage, chemical waste and other disease- spreading substances. If you've come in contact with floodwaters, wash your hands with soap and disinfected water. Avoid walking through floodwaters. As little as six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet. Don't drive through a flooded area. If you come upon a flooded road. turn around and go another way. A car can be carried away by just two feet of flood water. Electric current passes easily through water. so stay away from downed power lines and electrical wires. Animals lose their homes in floods, too. Be aware that even domesticated ani- inals may be confused and unpre- dictable in a flood situation. T.O.P.S. T.O.P.S. #558, Edinburg, meets at Grace Free Lutheran Church. Hwy 9.
