WEATHER SAFETY RULES AND BETTER UNDERSTAND THE HAZARDS ASSOCIATED
WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TULSA WILL ISSUE STATEMENTS
HIGHLIGHTING DIFFERENT TOPICS EACH DAY DURING THE WEEK...AND TODAYS
TOPIC IS LIGHTNING.

THERE ARE AN ESTIMATED 25 MILLION CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING FLASHES
EACH YEAR. WHILE LIGHTNING CAN BE FASCINATING TO WATCH...IT IS ALSO
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. DURING THE PAST 30 YEARS...LIGHTNING KILLED AN
AVERAGE OF 53 AMERICANS PER YEAR AND INJURED ANOTHER 300. THE NUMBER
OF AMERICANS KILLED BY LIGHTNING TYPICALLY EXCEEDS THE NUMBER OF
DEATHS RESULTING FROM BOTH TORNADOES AND HURRICANES. OVER THE PAST
FIVE YEARS...THE NUMBER OF LIGHTNING RELATED FATALITIES WAS ACTUALLY
BELOW THIS LONG TERM AVERAGE WITH ONLY 29 AMERICANS KILLED BY
LIGHTNING IN 2010...26 IN 2011...28 IN 2012...23 IN 2013...AND 26 IN
2014.

BY DEFINITION...ALL THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCE LIGHTNING AND DURING A
THUNDERSTORM EACH FLASH OF CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING IS A POTENTIAL
KILLER. ALTHOUGH SOME VICTIMS ARE STRUCK DIRECTLY BY THE MAIN
VISIBLE LIGHTNING STROKE...MANY OTHER VICTIMS ARE STRUCK AS THE
CURRENT MOVES IN AND ALONG THE GROUND. WHILE VIRTUALLY ALL PEOPLE
TAKE SOME PROTECTIVE ACTION DURING A THUNDERSTORM...MANY LEAVE
THEMSELVES VULNERABLE TO BEING STRUCK BY LIGHTNING AS THUNDERSTORMS
APPROACH...DEPART...OR ARE NEARBY.

LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE AS FAR AWAY AS 10 MILES FROM THE RAIN AREA OF A
THUNDERSTORM...WHICH IS ABOUT THE DISTANCE FROM A STORM THAT YOU ARE
ABLE TO HEAR THE THUNDER. IF YOU CAN HEAR THE THUNDER THEN YOU ARE
WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE OF THAT STORM.

GO INDOORS AND SUSPEND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IF YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO
A STORM TO HEAR THUNDER. STAY INDOORS FOR 30 MINUTES AFTER HEARING
THE LAST CLAP OF THUNDER. FOLLOWING THESE GUIDELINES WILL BETTER
ENSURE THAT YOU ARE OUT OF HARMS WAY WHEN THE STORM APPROACHES YOUR
AREA AND THAT YOU DO NOT PREMATURELY RESUME OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AS
THE STORM MOVES AWAY.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT LIGHTNING PREPAREDNESS AND THE DANGERS OF
LIGHTNING CAN BE OBTAINED FROM YOUR LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
OFFICE IN TULSA OR VISIT WEATHER.GOV/TULSA.

...TODAYS TOPIC FOR SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK IN OKLAHOMA AND
ARKANSAS IS TORNADOES...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
AGENCY ARE HIGHLIGHTING THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING AND PREPARING FOR
SEVERE WEATHER BEFORE IT STRIKES. BEING PREPARED TO ACT QUICKLY CAN
BE A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

CITIZENS OF OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS ARE URGED TO USE THIS WEEK TO PLAN
AND PREPARE FOR THE UPCOMING SEVERE WEATHER SEASON. REVIEW SEVERE
WEATHER SAFETY RULES AND BETTER UNDERSTAND THE HAZARDS ASSOCIATED
WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TULSA WILL ISSUE STATEMENTS
HIGHLIGHTING DIFFERENT TOPICS EACH DAY DURING THE WEEK...AND TODAYS
TOPIC IS TORNADOES.

A TORNADO IS DEFINED AS A VIOLENTLY ROTATING COLUMN OF AIR IN
CONTACT WITH THE GROUND THAT IS PENDANT TO A THUNDERSTORM.
AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT 1150 TORNADOES DEVELOP ACROSS THE UNITED STATES
ANNUALLY. THESE TORNADOES KILL ABOUT 57 AMERICANS AND INJURE ANOTHER
1500 IN A TYPICAL YEAR. THERE WERE 47 TORNADO RELATED FATALITIES
ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN 2014...17 OF THOSE OCCURRED IN ARKANSAS AND
ONE OF THOSE FATALITIES OCCURRED IN OKLAHOMA.

ON AVERAGE...33 TORNADOES TOUCH DOWN IN ARKANSAS EACH YEAR AND 57
DEVELOP IN OKLAHOMA IN A TYPICAL YEAR. IN 2014...20 TORNADOES STRUCK
ARKANSAS WHILE 16 TORNADOES WERE CONFIRMED IN OKLAHOMA.

TORNADOES ARE MOST LIKELY TO DEVELOP ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS
DURING THE SPRING MONTHS IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.
HOWEVER...AS LONG AS THE NECESSARY INGREDIENTS ARE PRESENT...
TORNADOES CAN DEVELOP DURING ANY MONTH OF THE YEAR AND AT ANY TIME
OF THE DAY.

TORNADOES ARE CLASSIFIED BY THE DAMAGE THEY PRODUCE...WHICH IS
DETERMINED BY SURVEYING IMPACTED STRUCTURES WITHIN THEIR PATHS. THE
NWS IMPLEMENTED THE ENHANCED FUJITA SCALE ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2007 AND
THIS HAS BEEN USED TO MORE ACCURATELY DETERMINE WIND SPEEDS WITHIN
THE TORNADO THAN WHAT WE PREVIOUSLY USED. THE THREE CLASSIFICATION
CATEGORIES ARE WEAK...STRONG... AND VIOLENT. TORNADOES MAY MOVE
FORWARD AT SPEEDS OF UP TO 75 MPH BUT SOME MAY REMAIN NEARLY
STATIONARY. MOST MOVE UNPREDICTABLY...AND MAY CHANGE DIRECTION
AND/OR SPEED AT ANY TIME DURING THEIR LIFE CYCLE.  REGARDLESS OF
THEIR STRENGTH...APPEARANCE...OR FORWARD SPEED...ALL TORNADOES ARE
DANGEROUS.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS YOU CAN DO TO INCREASE YOUR ODDS OF
SURVIVING A TORNADO DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE WHEN SEVERE WEATHER
THREATENS. IF AT HOME...TAKE SHELTER IN A PREDETERMINED SAFE PLACE
SUCH AS A BASEMENT OR STORM CELLAR. ABOVE-GROUND STORM SHELTERS HAVE
BEEN PROVEN TO BE AS SAFE AS BELOW GROUND SHELTERS IF THEY ARE
CERTIFIED AND CONSTRUCTED TO MEET THOSE CERTIFICATIONS STANDARDS. IF
NO SUCH PLACE IS AVAILABLE...THEN MOVE INTO A SMALL INTERIOR ROOM ON
THE LOWEST FLOOR SUCH AS A CLOSET OR BATHROOM. GET UNDER SOMETHING
HEAVY WHEN POSSIBLE. PUT AS MANY WALLS BETWEEN YOU AND THE OUTSIDE
AS POSSIBLE. LEAVE MOBILE HOMES AND VEHICLES FOR A STURDIER
STRUCTURE.

MOST IMPORTANTLY...STAY INFORMED OF DEVELOPING SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS
AND KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AND WHEN TO EXPECT IT. A WEATHER RADIO WITH
TONE ALERT FEATURE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THIS VITAL INFORMATION 24
HOURS A DAY. ONE WITH A BATTERY BACKUP IS SUGGESTED IN THE CASE OF A
POWER OUTAGE.

HAVE A PREDETERMINED PLAN OF ACTION THAT EVERYONE IN YOUR HOME KNOWS
AND PRACTICE THIS PLAN AS SEVERE WEATHER SEASON APPROACHES. YOUR
LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN TULSA OR AMERICAN RED CROSS
CHAPTER CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH THE INFORMATION NECESSARY TO DEVELOP
SUCH A PLAN.

...TODAYS TOPIC FOR SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK IN OKLAHOMA AND
ARKANSAS IS TORNADOES...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
AGENCY ARE HIGHLIGHTING THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING AND PREPARING FOR
SEVERE WEATHER BEFORE IT STRIKES. BEING PREPARED TO ACT QUICKLY CAN
BE A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

CITIZENS OF OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS ARE URGED TO USE THIS WEEK TO PLAN
AND PREPARE FOR THE UPCOMING SEVERE WEATHER SEASON. REVIEW SEVERE
WEATHER SAFETY RULES AND BETTER UNDERSTAND THE HAZARDS ASSOCIATED
WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TULSA WILL ISSUE STATEMENTS
HIGHLIGHTING DIFFERENT TOPICS EACH DAY DURING THE WEEK...AND TODAYS
TOPIC IS TORNADOES.

A TORNADO IS DEFINED AS A VIOLENTLY ROTATING COLUMN OF AIR IN
CONTACT WITH THE GROUND THAT IS PENDANT TO A THUNDERSTORM.
AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT 1150 TORNADOES DEVELOP ACROSS THE UNITED STATES
ANNUALLY. THESE TORNADOES KILL ABOUT 57 AMERICANS AND INJURE ANOTHER
1500 IN A TYPICAL YEAR. THERE WERE 47 TORNADO RELATED FATALITIES
ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN 2014...17 OF THOSE OCCURRED IN ARKANSAS AND
ONE OF THOSE FATALITIES OCCURRED IN OKLAHOMA.

ON AVERAGE...33 TORNADOES TOUCH DOWN IN ARKANSAS EACH YEAR AND 57
DEVELOP IN OKLAHOMA IN A TYPICAL YEAR. IN 2014...20 TORNADOES STRUCK
ARKANSAS WHILE 16 TORNADOES WERE CONFIRMED IN OKLAHOMA.

TORNADOES ARE MOST LIKELY TO DEVELOP ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS
DURING THE SPRING MONTHS IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.
HOWEVER...AS LONG AS THE NECESSARY INGREDIENTS ARE PRESENT...
TORNADOES CAN DEVELOP DURING ANY MONTH OF THE YEAR AND AT ANY TIME
OF THE DAY.

TORNADOES ARE CLASSIFIED BY THE DAMAGE THEY PRODUCE...WHICH IS
DETERMINED BY SURVEYING IMPACTED STRUCTURES WITHIN THEIR PATHS. THE
NWS IMPLEMENTED THE ENHANCED FUJITA SCALE ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2007 AND
THIS HAS BEEN USED TO MORE ACCURATELY DETERMINE WIND SPEEDS WITHIN
THE TORNADO THAN WHAT WE PREVIOUSLY USED. THE THREE CLASSIFICATION
CATEGORIES ARE WEAK...STRONG... AND VIOLENT. TORNADOES MAY MOVE
FORWARD AT SPEEDS OF UP TO 75 MPH BUT SOME MAY REMAIN NEARLY
STATIONARY. MOST MOVE UNPREDICTABLY...AND MAY CHANGE DIRECTION
AND/OR SPEED AT ANY TIME DURING THEIR LIFE CYCLE.  REGARDLESS OF
THEIR STRENGTH...APPEARANCE...OR FORWARD SPEED...ALL TORNADOES ARE
DANGEROUS.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS YOU CAN DO TO INCREASE YOUR ODDS OF
SURVIVING A TORNADO DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE WHEN SEVERE WEATHER
THREATENS. IF AT HOME...TAKE SHELTER IN A PREDETERMINED SAFE PLACE
SUCH AS A BASEMENT OR STORM CELLAR. ABOVE-GROUND STORM SHELTERS HAVE
BEEN PROVEN TO BE AS SAFE AS BELOW GROUND SHELTERS IF THEY ARE
CERTIFIED AND CONSTRUCTED TO MEET THOSE CERTIFICATIONS STANDARDS. IF
NO SUCH PLACE IS AVAILABLE...THEN MOVE INTO A SMALL INTERIOR ROOM ON
THE LOWEST FLOOR SUCH AS A CLOSET OR BATHROOM. GET UNDER SOMETHING
HEAVY WHEN POSSIBLE. PUT AS MANY WALLS BETWEEN YOU AND THE OUTSIDE
AS POSSIBLE. LEAVE MOBILE HOMES AND VEHICLES FOR A STURDIER
STRUCTURE.

MOST IMPORTANTLY...STAY INFORMED OF DEVELOPING SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS
AND KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AND WHEN TO EXPECT IT. A WEATHER RADIO WITH
TONE ALERT FEATURE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THIS VITAL INFORMATION 24
HOURS A DAY. ONE WITH A BATTERY BACKUP IS SUGGESTED IN THE CASE OF A
POWER OUTAGE.

HAVE A PREDETERMINED PLAN OF ACTION THAT EVERYONE IN YOUR HOME KNOWS
AND PRACTICE THIS PLAN AS SEVERE WEATHER SEASON APPROACHES. YOUR
LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN TULSA OR AMERICAN RED CROSS
CHAPTER CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH THE INFORMATION NECESSARY TO DEVELOP
SUCH A PLAN.

...TODAYS TOPIC FOR SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK IN OKLAHOMA AND
ARKANSAS IS METHODS TO RECEIVE SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION...

THIS WEEK...THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT AGENCY ARE HIGHLIGHTING THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING AND
PREPARING FOR SEVERE WEATHER BEFORE IT STRIKES. BEING PREPARED TO

CITIZENS OF OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS ARE URGED TO USE THIS WEEK TO PLAN
AND PREPARE FOR THE UPCOMING SEVERE WEATHER SEASON. REVIEW SEVERE
WEATHER SAFETY RULES AND BETTER UNDERSTAND THE HAZARDS ASSOCIATED

TOPIC IS METHODS TO RECEIVE SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION.

SEVERE WEATHER WARNINGS HAVE IMPROVED GREATLY OVER THE PAST TWENTY
YEARS...FOLLOWING THE INTRODUCTION OF DOPPLER WEATHER RADARS. EVEN
SO...THE MOST ACCURATE AND TIMELY WARNINGS WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE IF
PEOPLE DO NOT RECEIVE THE WARNINGS OR DO NOT KNOW HOW TO REACT TO
THEM.

MOST PEOPLE RECEIVE THEIR WEATHER INFORMATION...INCLUDING SEVERE
WEATHER WATCHES AND WARNINGS...FROM THEIR FAVORITE TELEVISION
STATION. BUT...WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE ARE NOT AT HOME OR DO NOT
HAVE THEIR TELEVISION TURNED ON?

ONE OF THE BEST SOURCES OF SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION IS THE NOAA

OF SEVEN DIFFERENT VHF FREQUENCIES BETWEEN 162.400 AND 162.550 MHZ.
THESE BROADCASTS CAN GENERALLY BE RECEIVED UP TO 40 MILES FROM THE
TRANSMITTER SITE...BUT CAN VARY DEPENDING ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR
RECEIVER...LOCAL TERRAIN...AND ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS.

THERE ARE CURRENTLY 18 NOAA WEATHER RADIO TRANSMITTERS SERVING
PORTIONS OF NORTHWESTERN ARKANSAS AND EASTERN OKLAHOMA...PROVIDING
CONTINUOUS WEATHER INFORMATION TO THOSE AREAS. THE TRANSMITTERS AND
THEIR FREQUENCIES ARE...

ANTLERS OKLAHOMA...162.400 MHZ
