The weather is perfect right now, but as we all know, spring is the time for thunderstorms in the Midwest. Are you ready?

I must admit, I hate thunderstorms this time of year. They are loud, scary, and can even be deadly. Thunderstorms produce lighting, tornadoes, and flooding. Scary stuff. So how can you be safe in a big thunderstorm? Be prepared! If you have ever fumbled to find a flash light during a thunderstorm, you know how scary it can be. So have a plan.

Like the Red Cross says, get a plan and be informed. Planning is the key.

Prepare now to be safe. For more information contact the American Red Cross.
