While not everyone has the same sensitivity to wildfire smoke, it’s still a good idea to avoid breathing smoke if you can help it. And when smoke is heavy, which it can be in areas near active wildfires, it’s bad for everyone.
Imagine sitting down for a delicious meal with your family. You’re about to enjoy your first bite when you hear what sounds like a motorcycle passing in your backyard. You feel your body tremble and shake and realize what you heard was not a motorcycle, but the earth cracking beneath you. How do you keep you and your family safe? What should you do?
Thunderstorms can develop rapidly and without warning – often accompanied by lightning. When thunderstorms form in your area and you hear thunder, you are likely within striking distance of the storm.
If you live near a fault line, you likely are no stranger to tremors or other earthquake activity. Preparation may be an ongoing process for your family.
