- Installed lightning detectors near the Sunderman, Palm, Putnam and Centre fields will sound an alert when dangerous lightning is within 10 miles of the device.
- All activities on the field should stop at that time and all participants should seek shelter.
- When the threat of a lightning strike has passed, usually within 30 minutes, the system will give an all-clear signal and field activities may continue.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT OUR WEATHER
- If you can hear thunder, you are within 10 miles (16 kilometers) of a storm and can be struck by lightning.
- Seek shelter immediately and avoid situations in which you may be vulnerable.
- Wait at least 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder before leaving shelter. The threat of lightning continues for a much longer period than most people realize.
- Don’t be fooled by sunshine or blue sky!
