Severe Thunderstorm warning issued until 6:45PM

A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect until 6:45PM.
As with any natural disaster, it is important to have an emergency plan in place BEFORE it occurs. Our department is flooded with calls during severe weather from citizens asking “what do I do?” There are important links in this post that can be helpful for your specific needs and situation. It is also advisable to have an emergency kit.

Remember, in the event of power outages, all malfunctioning traffic lights are to be treated as STOP SIGNS.

In the event of an emergency, listen to local radio, NOAA(National Weather Service) and utilize other media outlets for updates on weather conditions.

Weather Terms:
Tornado Watch- Tornadoes are possible. Remain alert for approaching storms. Watch the sky and stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or television for information.
Tornado Warning (Listen for tornado sirens)– A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. Take shelter immediately.
Severe Thunderstorm Watch– Tells you when and where severe thunderstorms are likely to occur. Watch the sky and stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or television for information.

What do I do about power? Please keep in mind that calling 911 and administrative lines tie up dispatchers and officers who are handling emergencies. If a downed line or transformer constitutes a hazard, please inform the dispatcher with the exact location of the problem. Police and Fire dispatchers will generally not know how long it will take to have power restored. Again, monitor media outlets. CLICK HERE FOR AEP OHIO FAQ
