Life Saving Tips Tonight

KSAL StaffMarch 7, 2016

Severe weather season is here in Kansas and National Weather Service meteorologists will be in Salina this evening to share life saving information at their annual “Storm Fury On The Plains” presentation.

Those who attend will learn the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, the features to look for, and where to find them.

Meteorologist Chance Hayes with the National Weather Service in Wichita tells KSAL News that getting into a basement is always the best plan for safety during a tornado, but if you are caught on the road – your car can become your shield.

“One of the best things you can do is buckle yourself in and lower your body below window level,” Hayes said.

“Because it usually takes about a mid-EF-3 or greater tornado to make your car roll or to become airborne.”

The “Storm Fury on The Plains” session in Salina begins at 6:30 at the the Salina South High School Theater. Members of the KSAL Severe Weather Team will be there, and will give away a weather radio.
