Thunderstorm warnings occur in the hot days of summer. This is sometimes referred to as an "Act of God" and the resulting damage is usually covered under your insurance policy. If a severe weather watch has been issued for your area:

  • Stay alert and listen to local broadcast outlets for severe weather warnings.
  • Get away from open areas, such as fields and golf courses, immediately.
  • If you are outdoors when a thunderstorm approaches and you feel static electricity around your body, you may be in danger of being struck by lightning. Kneel on the ground immediately, with feet together, place your hands on your knees and bend forward.
  • Watch out for flash floods.
