[IDHS] Hoosiers Should Be Vigilant of Severe Weather Threat Tonight
Start Date: 6/12/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 6/12/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
HOOSIERS SHOULD BE VIGILANT OF SEVERE WEATHER THREAT TONIGHT
“High Risk” weather designation for northern Indiana is uncommon

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is reminding Hoosiers to be aware of the weather tonight as there is a possibility for severe weather and tornadoes.

The National Storm Prediction Center says there is a high risk for severe weather in northern Indiana tonight, while the rest of the state is under a moderate or slight risk. The “high risk” designation is not used often, and means patterns are developing which could cause extreme weather. The National Weather Service says these storms may bring widespread damaging winds, large hail, dangerous lightning, tornadoes, and torrential rainfall producing flash flooding.

Hoosiers should remain aware of changing weather conditions, and assess the need to travel while severe weather is in the area. Consider bringing any outdoor furniture or items inside.

Power Outages
With weather systems like this, it's not uncommon to see widespread power outages. While utility companies will be working to quickly repair any outages, storms of this size and magnitude often make it very difficult to restore power immediately.

Take the time now to charge cell phones, laptops and other devices, so that if power goes out, electronic devices will have a maximum charge.

Essential supplies to gather ahead of time in case utilities are disrupted:

  • Food and water for three days (includes a minimum of one gallon of water per person, per day)
  • Battery operated or hand crank all hazards radio 
  • Flashlight 
  • Extra batteries for radio and flashlight 
  • Special items (baby formula, insulin, medications)
