Tornado Watch for Antioch Residents?
Our team in Northwest Lake County responds to storm damage emergencies in Antioch 24-hours a day, every day of the year. Tornadoes can occur in Lake County, so here are the tornado and high wind alert definitions from the National Weather Service:
Tornado Watch: This means a tornado is possible.
Tornado Warning: A tornado is already occurring or will occur soon. Go to your safe place immediately.
High Wind Watch: Be Prepared! Sustained, strong winds are possible. Secure loose items and adjust plans as necessary so you’re not caught outside.
Wind Advisory: Take Action: Strong winds are occurring but are not so strong to warrant a High Wind Warning. Outside objects should be secured, and caution should be taken if driving.
Severe Thunderstorm Warning: Take Action! A thunderstorm is happening or is imminent in the warning area. Severe thunderstorms have wind gusts of 58 miles per hour and hail one inch or larger. Seek shelter inside a sturdy building.
Preparing for High Winds
- Remove any dead trees or overhanging branches near structures
- Remove loose objects outdoors, on patios, roofs, or balconies that could blow away
- Shutter windows securely and brace outside doors
- Bring in unsecured objects from outside and secure objects that could blow away and cause damage or injury
