As severe weather season approaches the department of transportation and development is calling for everyone remain weather aware when on the roadways.
DOTD's Deidre Druilhet says when dealing with a severe weather threat strong wind gust can be very dangerous .
Although tornado's can be dangerous it is survivable here are a few tips to help you throughout the severe weather get in, get down and cover up.
If you are outside, get inside as soon as possible. If possible get underground. If not, go to the lowest floor. Flying and falling debris are a storm's number one killer.
Druilhet tells me it's also important to reduce your speed limit during bad weather conditions.
Having a plan is key and should be known by everyone in the home and practiced at least twice each year. Children who may be at home alone should know what to do and where to go even if no adults are present.
