PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
700 AM EDT THU APRIL 28 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS DECLARED THE WEEK OF APRIL
25TH THROUGH 29TH, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN NEW
ENGLAND. THIS IS THE FOURTH IN A SERIES OF FIVE PUBLIC
INFORMATION STATEMENTS ON VARIOUS TOPICS RELATED TO SEVERE
WEATHER AWARENESS.


...SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS - TORNADOES...

TORNADOES ARE NATURE`S MOST VIOLENT STORM.  BY DEFINITION, A
TORNADO IS A VIOLENTLY ROTATING COLUMN OF AIR THAT EXTENDS
FROM THE BASE OF THE THUNDERSTORM CLOUD TO THE GROUND.

IN ADDITION TO THE THREE BASIC INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THE
FORMATION OF THUNDERSTORMS AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS (LOW-
LEVEL MOISTURE, AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE, AND A SOURCE OF
LIFT), WINDS AT VARIOUS LEVELS IN THE ATMOSPHERE FACTOR INTO
THE DEVELOPMENT OF TORNADOES.

USUALLY, PRIOR TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TORNADO, A PRE-
TORNADIC THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPS A CIRCULATION, THAT IS, IT
STARTS ROTATING (A MESO-CYCLONE).  AS THIS ROTATION BECOMES
STRONGER, THE CHANCE THAT A TORNADO MAY DEVELOP ALSO
INCREASES.  ALTHOUGH THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE`S DOPPLER
RADAR GENERALLY CAN NOT SEE THE ACTUAL TORNADO, THE RADAR
DOES DETECT ROTATION OF THE THUNDERSTORM CLOUD, AND THEREBY
GIVES SOME INDICATION OF THE POSSIBILITY THAT A TORNADO MAY
BE FORMING OR HAS FORMED.

THE SCALE USED TO MEASURE TORNADO DAMAGE IS THE ENHANCED
FUJITA SCALE (NAMED AFTER THEODORE FUJITA, A FAMOUS TORNADO
DAMAGE EXPERT).  THIS SCALE IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE E-
F SCALE.  BASED ON SCIENTIFIC STUDIES OF TORNADO DAMAGE, THE
ORIGINAL FUJITA SCALE WAS MODIFIED AND THE NEW "ENHANCED
FUJITA SCALE" WAS OFFICIALLY IMPLEMENTED IN 2007.

  EF-0 - LIGHT DAMAGE (WINDS 65 TO 85 MPH)
  EF-1 - MODERATE DAMAGE (WINDS 86 TO 110 MPH)
  EF-2 - CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE (WINDS 111 TO 135 MPH)
  EF-3 - SEVERE DAMAGE (WINDS 136 TO 165 MPH)
  EF-4 - DEVASTATING DAMAGE (WINDS 166 TO 200 MPH)
  EF-5 - INCREDIBLE DAMAGE (WINDS OVER 200 MPH)

PEAK TORNADO ACTIVITY IN NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND OCCURS BETWEEN
JUNE AND AUGUST, BUT TORNADOES HAVE OCCURRED AS EARLY AS MAY
AND AS LATE AS NOVEMBER.  MOST TORNADOES OCCUR BETWEEN 3 AND
9 PM AND HAVE AN AVERAGE FORWARD SPEED OF ABOUT 30 MPH.  FOR
THE 40 YEAR PERIOD BETWEEN 1950 AND 1990, 74 TORNADOES
OCCURRED IN MAINE WHILE 68 TORNADOES OCCURRED IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE.  BASED ON THESE DATA, EACH STATE HAD AVERAGED
ABOUT TWO TORNADOES PER YEAR.  DURING THIS PERIOD, THE
AVERAGE PATH LENGTH OF THE TORNADOES WAS 1.08 MILES FOR MAINE
AND 1.64 MILES FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE.  THE STRONGEST TORNADO
OBSERVED IN MAINE WAS AN F2, WHILE THE STRONGEST TORNADO
OBSERVED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE WAS AN F3.

DURING 2015, THERE WAS ONE TORNADO RECORDED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
AND NONE IN MAINE.

TO ALERT THE PUBLIC TO THE THREAT OF TORNADOES, THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE ISSUES TORNADO WATCHES AND WARNINGS.  A
TORNADO WATCH INDICATES THAT ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE
FAVORABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TORNADOES.  A TORNADO
WARNING INDICATES THAT A TORNADO IS IMMINENT OR IS ALREADY
OCCURRING.  IF YOU HEAR THAT A TORNADO WARNING HAS BEEN
ISSUED FOR YOUR AREA, SEEK SAFE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY IF YOU
ARE IN THE PATH OF THE STORM.

DUE TO THE USUAL SHORT LIFE-SPAN OF TORNADOES IN NORTHERN NEW
ENGLAND, THERE IS OFTEN LITTLE, IF ANY, ADVANCE WARNING.
TORNADOES IN NEW ENGLAND GENERALLY TOUCH DOWN AND THEN LIFT
OFF THE GROUND VERY QUICKLY.  MANY OF THE TORNADOES THAT HAVE
OCCURRED IN THE PAST, HAVE OCCURRED WHILE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
WARNINGS HAVE BEEN IN EFFECT.  IF YOU HEAR THAT A SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR YOUR AREA, BE ALERT FOR
THE POSSIBILITY OF A TORNADO.  A LOW ROTATING CLOUD, LARGE
HAIL, AND/OR A LOAD ROAR ARE ALL SIGNS THAT MAY PRECEDE THE
TOUCHDOWN OF A TORNADO.

HERE ARE SOME TORNADO FACTS AND SAFETY TIPS.

   *  FLYING DEBRIS CAUSES MOST DEATHS AND INJURIES IN
      TORNADOES

   *  THE SAFEST PLACE IN YOUR HOME DURING A TORNADO IS YOUR
      BASEMENT.

   *  STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS.

   *  GET OUT OF VEHICLES OR MOBILE HOMES, THEY OFFER LITTLE
      PROTECTION.  SEEK SHELTER IN A SUBSTANTIAL BUILDING.

   *  DO NOT SEEK SHELTER UNDER A BRIDGE OVERPASS.  BRIDGE
      OVERPASSES OFFER LITTLE, IF ANY, PROTECTION FROM WIND-
      DRIVEN DEBRIS.


HERE IS A LIST OF THE REMAINING TOPICS THAT WILL BE COVERED
IN PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE THIS WEEK.

...SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CARIBOU, MAINE HAS DECLARED APRIL 25TH
THROUGH MAY 1ST AS SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK. EACH DAY DURING
THE PREPAREDNESS WEEK WILL FEATURE INFORMATION ABOUT A DIFFERENT
SEVERE WEATHER RELATED TOPIC.

NEW ENGLAND WILL QUICKLY TRANSITION FROM EARLY SPRING WEATHER TO
MORE SUMMER LIKE WEATHER PATTERNS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS. ALONG
WITH THE WARMER WEATHER COMES AN INCREASING THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS,
AND WITH IT COMES THE THREAT FOR SEVERE WEATHER.  ARE YOU PREPARED
FOR SEVERE WEATHER?  DO YOU KNOW WHERE AND HOW TO RECEIVE FORECASTS?
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO RECEIVE WARNINGS AND WATCHES FOR SEVERE WEATHER?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO DURING AND AFTER SEVERE WEATHER IMPACTS YOU?

...KNOW WHAT TO DO BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER A TORNADO OR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM...

KNOWING WHAT TO DO BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER A TORNADO OR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE. HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

BEFORE:
-  PICK A SAFE ROOM IN YOUR HOME SUCH AS A BASEMENT, STORM CELLAR OR
   AN INTERIOR ROOM ON THE LOWEST FLOOR WITH NO WINDOWS.
-  MAKE SURE ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY KNOW WHERE TO GO.
-  STORE EMERGENCY SUPPLIES SUCH AS A FIRST-AID KIT AND FLASHLIGHTS
   WITH EXTRA BATTERIES ARE STORED THERE IN CASE YOU NEED THEM.
-  PUT TOGETHER A FAMILY COMMUNICATIONS PLAN.
-  YOU SHOULD ALSO IDENTIFY A SAFE LOCATION AT WORK OR SCHOOL.

DURING:
-  WHEN A TORNADO OR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING IS ISSUED, YOU
   SHOULD IMMEDIATELY GO TO A SAFE ROOM.
-  IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE, YOU NEED TO SEEK SHELTER INSIDE A STURDY
   BUILDING.
-  MOBILE HOMES ARE NEVER SAFE DURING A TORNADO. IF YOU ARE IN A
MOBILE HOME OR A RECREATIONAL VEHICLE, YOU SHOULD HEAD FOR A STORM
SHELTER.
-  IF YOU CANNOT QUICKLY WALK TO A SHELTER IMMEDIATELY GET INTO A
VEHICLE, BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELT AND TRY TO DRIVE TO THE CLOSEST
STURDY SHELTER.
AFTER:
-  IF YOU ARE IN AN AREA THAT WAS DAMAGED, BE CAREFUL OF DEBRIS THAT
MAY INCLUDE SHARP OR DANGEROUS OBJECTS AND WATCH OUT FOR DOWNED
POWER LINES AND BROKEN GAS LINES.
-  USE BATTERY-POWERED FLASHLIGHTS WHEN EXAMINING BUILDINGS. DO NOT
USE CANDLES WHICH COULD START A FIRE.
-  IF YOU SMELL GAS OR HEAR A BLOWING OR HISSING NOISE, OPEN A
WINDOW AND GET EVERYONE OUT OF THE BUILDING QUICKLY AND THEN CALL
THE GAS COMPANY OR FIRE DEPARTMENT.
-  USE THE TELEPHONE ONLY FOR EMERGENCY CALLS SO RESCUE OPERATION
LINES AREN`T TIED UP. TEXT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO LET THEM KNOW
YOU ARE OK.
-  IF YOU WERE OUTSIDE OF THE AREA DAMAGED BY THE TORNADO, STAY OFF
THE PHONE SO THAT EMERGENCY CALLS CAN GET THROUGH. USE TEXT MESSAGES
AND SOCIAL MEDIA TO LET YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY KNOW YOU ARE OK.
-  STAY AWAY FROM AREAS THAT WERE DAMAGED SO YOU DO NOT HAMPER
RESCUE OPERATIONS. ONLY RETURN TO AREAS THAT WERE DAMAGED WHEN LOCAL
LAW ENFORCEMENT GIVES THE ALL-CLEAR.

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
730 AM EDT WED APR 27 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS DECLARED THE WEEK OF APRIL
25TH  THROUGH 29TH, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN NEW
ENGLAND.  THIS IS THE THIRD IN A SERIES OF FIVE PUBLIC
INFORMATION STATEMENTS ON VARIOUS TOPICS RELATED TO SEVERE
WEATHER AWARENESS.


...SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS - SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS -
DOWNBURSTS, MICROBURSTS, MESO-CYCLONES, AND HAIL...

BY DEFINITION, A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM IS ONE WHICH PRODUCES
WIND GUSTS OF 58 MPH OR MORE, OR HAIL 1 INCH IN DIAMETER OR
GREATER. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAN ALSO PRODUCE TORNADOES.

IN NEW ENGLAND, SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE NOT UNCOMMON
DURING THE SUMMER.  EVERY YEAR, THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE GETS NUMEROUS REPORTS OF WIND AND HAIL DAMAGE
THROUGHOUT MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE.  SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
WINDS DOWN TREES AND BRANCHES ONTO HOMES, BUILDINGS,
VEHICLES, AND POWER LINES.  SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES ARE
OFTEN THE RESULT OF LIGHTNING OR WIND-FALLEN TREES AND
BRANCHES.  ALSO, WIND-DRIVEN HAIL FROM THUNDERSTORMS
FLATTENS AND/OR DAMAGES CROPS IN THE STATES.  ON RARE
OCCASIONS, LARGE HAILSTONES DAMAGE HOMES, BUILDINGS, AND
VEHICLES.  IN ADDITION TO THE LIGHTNING, FALLING TREES AND
LARGE HAIL ALSO POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO PEOPLE, AS
WELL.


THUNDERSTORM WINDS, DOWNDRAFTS, DOWNBURSTS, AND MICROBURSTS

DURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A THUNDERSTORM, WARM AIR RISES
UPWARD IN THE ATMOSPHERE (AN UPDRAFT) CAUSING THE FORMATION
OF CLOUDS AND PRECIPITATION.  AS A THUNDERSTORM MATURES,
COOL, PRECIPITATION-LADEN AIR SINKS DOWNWARD THROUGH THE
ATMOSPHERE (A DOWNDRAFT).  WHEN A DOWNDRAFT REACHES THE
GROUND IT SPREADS OUT CAUSING THE COOL, GUSTY WIND THAT
OFTEN ACCOMPANIES A THUNDERSTORM.

IN SOME THUNDERSTORMS, INTENSE DOWNDRAFTS DEVELOP.  WHEN
THESE DOWNDRAFTS REACH THE GROUND, THEY SPREAD OUT VERY
QUICKLY CAUSING STRONG AND OFTEN DAMAGING WINDS AT THE
GROUND.  THESE INTENSE DOWNDRAFTS ARE CALLED DOWNBURSTS AND
CAN CAUSE SIGNIFICANT WIND DAMAGE OVER LARGE AREAS.  IN THE
CASE OF DOWNBURSTS, THE DAMAGE IS GENERALLY REFERRED TO AS
STRAIGHT-LINE WIND DAMAGE SINCE FALLEN TREES GENERALLY LINE
UP IN THE SAME DIRECTION.  IN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, MOST
THUNDERSTORM WIND DAMAGE IS CAUSED BY DOWNBURSTS.

A SPECIAL TYPE OF DOWNBURST IS THE MICROBURST.  MICROBURSTS
GET THEIR NAME BECAUSE THEY GENERALLY AFFECT A MUCH SMALLER
GEOGRAPHICAL AREA, BUT THE WINDS IN A MICROBURST CAN BE
VERY INTENSE.  LIKE THE GENERAL DOWNBURST, MOST OF THE
DAMAGE WITH MICROBURSTS LINES UP IN ONE DIRECTION,
ALTHOUGH, THERE MAY BE A TENDENCY FOR THE DAMAGE TO RADIATE
OUTWARD.  MICROBURSTS ARE USUALLY ACCOMPANIED BY HEAVY RAIN
AND/OR HAIL AND CAN HAVE WINDS AS STRONG AS THOSE IN A
SMALL TORNADO.

UNDER CERTAIN ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS, THUNDERSTORMS CAN
BEGIN TO DEVELOP A CIRCULATION WITHIN THE THUNDERSTORM
CLOUD.  THESE STORMS ARE OFTEN CALLED MESO-CYCLONES BECAUSE
OF THE COUNTER-CLOCKWISE CIRCULATION THAT DEVELOPS WITHIN
THE STORM.  THE UPDRAFTS AND DOWNDRAFTS IN THESE STORMS CAN
PERSIST FOR HOURS AS THE STORM MOVES ALONG ITS PATH.
SEVERE WINDS AND HAIL ARE ALSO MORE LIKELY WITH MESO-
CYCLONES, AND IF THE ROTATION WITHIN THE STORM BECOMES MORE
INTENSE, THERE IS AN INCREASING POSSIBILITY THAT THE STORM
MIGHT PRODUCE A TORNADO.  NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER
RADAR ALLOWS METEOROLOGISTS TO MONITOR AIR MOVEMENT WITHIN
THESE STORMS AND TO SEE THE DEVELOPMENT AND STRENGTH OF ANY
CIRCULATION WITHIN THE STORM.


HAIL

THE CIRCULATION THAT ACCOMPANIES A MESO-CYCLONE IS ALSO A
FACTOR IN HAIL FORMATION.  HAIL INITIALLY FORMS WHEN LIQUID
WATER DROPLETS ARE CARRIED UPWARD BY THE UPDRAFT TO A LEVEL
WHERE THE DROPLETS FREEZE.  EVENTUALLY, THE SMALL HAIL
STONE MAY BEGIN TO FALL DOWNWARD, ONLY TO BE CAUGHT ONCE
AGAIN BY THE PERSISTENT UPDRAFT OF A MESO-CYCLONE.  EACH
TIME THE HAILSTONE GOES THROUGH THIS PROCESS, IT GETS
LARGER AND HEAVIER.  EVENTUALLY, THE HAILSTONE WILL BE
BLOWN AWAY FROM THE UPDRAFT OR WILL BECOME TOO HEAVY FOR
THE UPDRAFT TO SUPPORT AND THE HAILSTONE WILL FALL TO THE
GROUND.

IN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, HAIL IS FAIRLY COMMON DURING
WELL- DEVELOPED SUMMERTIME THUNDERSTORMS.  ALTHOUGH MOST
HAIL THAT REACHES THE GROUND IN NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND IS AN
INCH OR LESS IN DIAMETER, OCCASIONALLY HAILSTONES OVER 2
INCHES IN DIAMETER WILL FALL.  LARGE HAILSTONES CAN FALL AT
SPEEDS FASTER THAN 100 MPH AND CAN DO CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE
TO CARS, HOMES, AND BUILDINGS, AND CAN BE A SIGNIFICANT
THREAT TO PEOPLE, AS WELL.

DURING 2015 IN MAINE, THE MOST SIGNIFICANT HAIL REPORTS
WERE 2.75 INCHES IN NORTH BERWICK AND 2.5 INCHES IN
WATERBORO. IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, THE MOST SIGNIFICANT REPORT
WAS 2.50 INCHES IN ROCHESTER.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE LARGER HAILSTONES REPORTED IN MAINE
AND NEW HAMPSHIRE SINCE 1995.

     SEP 12 2013  UPTON, MAINE
     JUL  3 2014  STATHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE

FOR BOTH SEVERE WINDS (58 MPH OR GREATER) AND LARGE HAIL (1
INCH OR GREATER IN DIAMETER), THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
ISSUES SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCHES AND WARNINGS.  A WATCH
INDICATES THAT THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR
SEVERE WEATHER TO DEVELOP.  A WARNING INDICATES THAT SEVERE
WEATHER IS IMMINENT OR IS ALREADY OCCURRING.  IF YOU HEAR A
WARNING FOR YOUR AREA, BE PREPARED TO SEEK A SAFE SHELTER
IF YOU ARE IN THE PATH OF THE STORM.

HERE IS A LIST OF THE OTHER TOPICS THAT WILL BE COVERED IN
PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE THIS WEEK.

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
700 AM EDT TUE APR 26 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS DECLARED THE WEEK OF APRIL 25TH
THROUGH 29TH, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN NEW ENGLAND.  THIS
IS THE SECOND IN A SERIES OF FIVE PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS ON
VARIOUS TOPICS RELATED TO SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS.


...SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS - THUNDERSTORMS AND LIGHTNING...

ALTHOUGH IT MAY NOT SEEM SO TODAY, SUMMER IS NOT FAR AWAY.
SUMMERTIME IS A GOOD TIME FOR OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES IN NEW
ENGLAND; IT IS ALSO THE TIME OF THE YEAR WHEN THUNDERSTORMS ARE MOST
LIKELY. THUNDERSTORMS CAN BE BEAUTIFUL, BUT THEY ALSO CAN BE DEADLY.
WHILE MANY PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE AWARE OF THE DANGERS OF
THUNDERSTORMS AND LIGHTNING, THE VAST MAJORITY ARE NOT.

THERE ARE THREE BASIC INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THE FORMATION OF A
THUNDERSTORM.  THEY INCLUDE LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE, AN UNSTABLE
ATMOSPHERE, AND A TRIGGER (A SOURCE OF LIFT).

LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE: THIS MOISTURE IS NEEDED FOR CLOUD FORMATION,
GROWTH, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF PRECIPITATION WITHIN THE CLOUD.

UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE:AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE ALLOWS WARM, MOIST AIR
NEAR THE GROUND TO RISE RAPIDLY TO HIGHER LEVELS IN THE ATMOSPHERE
WHERE TEMPERATURES ARE BELOW FREEZING.  AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE ALSO
ALLOWS AIR AT HIGHER LEVELS IN THE ATMOSPHERE TO SINK TO THE GROUND
LEVEL RAPIDLY, BRINGING STRONGER WINDS FROM THE HIGHER LEVELS TO THE
GROUND.

A TRIGGER: SOMETHING TO SET THE ATMOSPHERE IN MOTION.

ALL THREE INGREDIENTS CONTRIBUTE TO THE FORMATION OF A THUNDER-
STORM. IN FACT, AS THE MAGNITUDES OF THESE INGREDIENTS INCREASE,
SO DO THE CHANCES THAT A THUNDERSTORMS COULD BECOME SEVERE.

IN THE SUMMERTIME, LISTEN TO THE LATEST FORECAST AND LEARN TO
RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS THAT OFTEN PRECEDE THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT.

WARM MUGGY AIR IS A SIGN THAT AMPLE LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE IS
AVAILABLE FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT.  TOWERING CUMULUS CLOUDS
INDICATE AN ATMOSPHERE THAT IS, OR IS BECOMING, UNSTABLE.  AND,
THE TRIGGER COULD BE CONTINUED HEATING FROM THE SUN; AN
APPROACHING FRONT OR SEA BREEZE FRONT; OR A COOLING OF THE UPPER
ATMOSPHERE.

ALL THUNDERSTORMS GO THROUGH VARIOUS STAGES OF GROWTH AND
DEVELOPMENT. AS A THUNDERSTORM CLOUD CONTINUES TO GROW, SNOW AND
ICE BEGIN TO FORM IN THE MIDDLE AND HIGHER LEVELS OF THE CLOUD
WHERE TEMPERATURES ARE BELOW FREEZING, AND ELECTRICAL CHARGES
START TO BUILD UP WITHIN THE CLOUD.  NEGATIVE ELECTRICAL CHARGES
NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE THUNDERSTORM CLOUD CAUSE POSITIVE CHARGES
TO BUILD UP ON THE GROUND UNDER AND NEAR THE THUNDERSTORM.
FINALLY, WHEN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE CHARGES BECOMES TOO
GREAT, A GIANT ATMOSPHERIC SPARK WE CALL LIGHTNING OCCURS.

LIGHTNING IS AN UNDERRATED KILLER, USUALLY CLAIMING ITS VICTIMS
ONE AT A TIME.  LIGHTNING ALSO LEAVES MANY VICTIMS WITH LIFE-
LONG SERIOUS INJURIES.  LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE AS FAR AS 10 MILES
FROM THE SIDE OF THE THUNDERSTORM CLOUD.  IN FACT, MANY
LIGHTNING VICTIMS ARE STRUCK BEFORE THE RAIN ARRIVES OR AFTER
THE RAIN HAS ENDED.  MANY VICTIMS ALSO REPORT THAT AT LEAST A
PORTION OF THE SKY WAS BLUE WHEN THEY WERE STRUCK.  DURING THE
PAST 10 YEARS, MAINE HAS HAD 3 LIGHTNING FATALITIES WHILE NEW
HAMPSHIRE HAS NOT HAD ANY.  ALTHOUGH MAINE HAS LESS LIGHTNING
THAN MOST STATES EAST OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, MAINE RANKS QUITE
HIGH IN TERMS OF LIGHTNING DEATHS PER CAPITA.

THIS SUMMER, THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL PARTICIPATE IN A
NATIONWIDE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF DEATHS AND
INJURIES FROM LIGHTNING.  ALTHOUGH MORE INFORMATION ON LIGHTNING
AND LIGHTNING SAFETY WILL BE PROVIDED DURING LIGHTNING SAFETY
AWARENESS WEEK, THE LAST FULL WEEK IN JUNE, HERE ARE SOME BASIC
TIPS TO HELP KEEP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SAFE THIS SUMMER.

WHILE INSIDE A HOME OR BUILDING

  1.AVOID ANY CONTACT WITH ELECTRICAL OR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT OR
CORDS THAT ARE PLUGGED INTO THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
  2. AVOID ANY CONTACT WITH CORDED PHONES.
  3. AVOID ANY CONTACT WITH THE PLUMBING SYSTEM.  DO NOT WASH
YOUR HANDS, DO NOT WASH THE DISHES, DO NOT TAKE A SHOWER,
OR DO NOT DO LAUNDRY.
  4. DO NOT STAND NEXT TO A CONCRETE WALL AND DO NOT LIE ON A
CONCRETE FLOOR.
  5. STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS, OUTSIDE DOORWAYS, AND PORCHES.

TIPS WHILE OUTDOORS

  1. THERE IS NO SAFE PLACE OUTSIDE IN A THUNDERSTORM.  TO BE SAFE,
YOU MUST GET INSIDE A SUBSTANTIAL BUILDING OR HARD-TOPPED METAL
VEHICLE.
  2. PLAN OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES SO THAT YOU MINIMIZE THE RISK OF
BEING CAUGHT OUTSIDE IN A THUNDERSTORM.
  3. IF YOU HEAR THUNDER, MOVE INSIDE A SAFE SHELTER IMMEDI-
ATELY.  GENERALLY, IF YOU CAN HEAR THE THUNDER, YOU`RE
WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE OF THE STORM.
  4. IF THE SKY LOOKS THREATENING, MOVE INSIDE IMMEDIATELY.
DON`T WAIT FOR THE FIRST FLASH OF LIGHTNING.  IT COULD
OCCUR ANYWHERE UNDER OR NEAR THE STORM.
  5. STAY INSIDE A SAFE SHELTER FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES AFTER
THE LAST RUMBLE OF THUNDER WAS HEARD.  MANY LIGHTNING
VICTIMS ARE STRUCK AFTER THE WORST PART OF THE STORM HAS
PASSED.

REMEMBER, WHEN IT COMES TO THUNDERSTORM SAFETY, IT`S YOUR OWN
ACTIONS THAT WILL DETERMINE YOUR PERSONAL RISK OF BEING KILLED
OR SERIOUSLY INJURED BY THE HAZARDS THAT ACCOMPANY
THUNDERSTORMS.

HERE IS A LIST OF THE OTHER TOPICS THAT HAVE BEEN OR WILL BE
COVERED IN PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE THIS WEEK.

MONDAY......SOME BASIC DEFINITIONS
WEDNESDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS - DOWNBURSTS, MICROBURSTS,
            AND HAIL
THURSDAY....TORNADOES
FRIDAY......FLASH FLOODS
