Thunderstorm Preparedness Tips for Lincoln Park

4/14/2021 (Permalink)

Lightning is shown striking over the city of Chicago at night. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Chicago.

SERVPRO® of Gold Coast /Lincoln Park /Lakeview wants Lincoln Park residents to stay safe during severe weather events and offers these safety tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency on thunderstorm safety:

  • When you hear thunder, go indoors. A sturdy building is the safest place to be during a thunderstorm
  • Pay attention to weather reports and warnings of thunderstorms. Be ready to change plans, if necessary, to be near shelter
  • When you receive a thunderstorm warning or hear thunder, go inside immediately
  • If indoors, avoid running water or using landline phones. Electricity can travel through plumbing and phone lines
  • Protect your property. Unplug appliances and other electric devices
  • If boating or swimming, get to land and find a sturdy, grounded shelter or vehicle immediately
  • If necessary, take shelter in a car with a metal top and sides. Do not touch anything metal
  • Avoid flooded roadways. Turn Around Don’t Drown®. Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away
