PREPARE IMMEDIATELY FOR DAMAGING WINDS. FOR YOUR SAFETY, MOVE TO AN

INTENSE THUNDERSTORM LINES CAN PRODUCE BRIEF TORNADOES AND WIDESPREAD  
SIGNIFICANT WIND DAMAGE. ALTHOUGH A TORNADO IS NOT IMMEDIATELY  
LIKELY, IT IS BEST TO MOVE TO AN INTERIOR ROOM ON THE LOWEST FLOOR OF  
A BUILDING. THESE STORMS MAY CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY AND SIGNIFICANT  
PROPERTY DAMAGE.  
 
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL QUICKLY REDUCE VISIBILITY AND RESULT IN  
PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS, STANDING WATER IN LOW LYING AREAS, AND  
MINOR FLOODING OF CREEKS, STREAMS, AND AREAS OF POOR DRAINAGE.  
DRIVERS ARE URGED TO SLOW DOWN AND USE EXTRA CAUTION TO AVOID  
HYDROPLANING.
