Severe Weather Threat as Thunderstorms Roll Through Beckley?

8/23/2022 (Permalink)

Huge cumulonimbus clouds cover the sky. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Our team in Beckley wants everyone to stay safe during thunderstorms. We have been responding to storm damage emergencies since 1991 in Raleigh County. Here are some helpful facts and tips from the National Weather Service:

Lightning Quick Facts

  • Lightning often strikes the same place repeatedly if it is a tall, isolated object
  • Most lightning victims are in open areas or near a tree
  • Lightning strikes the United States about 25 million times each year
  • Lightning can heat its path through the air to five times hotter than the surface of the sun

When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors

Nowhere outside is safe when thunderstorms are in the area. Run to a safe building or vehicle when you first hear thunder, see lightning or observe dark threatening clouds developing overhead. Stay inside until 30 minutes after you hear the last clap of thunder.

  • Stop all activities
  • Seek shelter in a substantial building or a hard-topped vehicle
  • Wait thirty minutes after the storm to resume activities
  • Stay off corded phones. You can use cellular or cordless phones.
  • Don’t touch electrical equipment or cords
  • Avoid plumbing. Do not wash your hands, take a shower or wash dishes
  • Stay away from windows and doors, and stay off porches
  • Do not lie on concrete floors or lean against concrete walls
