The Wet Season: Be Prepared With a Transportable Shade Shed
As the Wet Season starts to gain momentum, it’s important to be prepared for the oncoming storms. Higgins Storm Chasing reports that there is a “HUGE week of rain and storms coming up for QLD, NSW, ACT & VIC!”
The Wet Season equals Storm Season in Australia and can bring much-needed relief from the scorching heat, but it also brings with it a range of weather conditions. These include thunderstorms.
While thunderstorms can be a spectacular sight, they can also be dangerous, particularly when they turn severe. What really makes a thunderstorm, severe? Check out this video:
Thunderstorms and the Wet Season in Australia
Australia is known for its diverse climate, and the Wet Season is no exception. During this time, the country experiences increased rainfall and thunderstorms. While thunderstorms can be a beautiful sight, they can also turn severe and bring with them strong winds, heavy rain, lightning, and even hail. When thunderstorms turn severe, they can cause widespread damage and put people’s safety at risk.
Protection From Thunderstorms
While you cannot prevent thunderstorms from occurring, there are steps you can take to stay prepared and protected.
When a Severe Thunderstorm Threatens
- Shelter and secure pets and animals.
- Check your yard or balcony and secure or store items that could blow around in strong winds, e.g. garden furniture, and trampolines.
- Park vehicles under solid shelter.
- Secure all external doors and windows and draw curtains.
- Put valuables, medications and spare warm clothing in plastic bags with your emergency kit and keep it handy.
It’s also important to keep up-to-date with the current weather warnings for your specific location which you can view here.
When a Thunderstorm Strikes
- Stay inside and shelter well clear of windows, doors and skylights.
- Don’t use a fixed telephone during a thunderstorm due to lightning danger.
- Avoid touching brick or concrete, or standing bare-footed on concrete or tiled floors.
- Keep checking the Bureau website or app and listen to your local radio station for storm warnings and updates.
