Preparing for Severe Weather in Oklahoma City?

The ClearSight LASIK employees know severe weather is serious business, and they all prepare in different way.

  • Stephanie gets the storm cellar ready before spring and fills a bucket in the house with things like water, flashlights, extra batteries and snacks.
  • For Jodi it’s simple: clean out a closet so if a weather warning is issued, she’s ready to protect herself.
  • Keagan begins each storm season with a cleaning of the storm cellar — especially the cobwebs.
  • Nancy’s shelter is in the garage so there’s always a clear path between the house and the garage. And she stocks her shelter space with extra sneakers, water, a battery-powered radio and a wind-up radio, a cell phone battery charger and, of course, an umbrella

Do you have a severe weather plan? Here are a few more tips:

  • Designate an interior room within your home where everyone will go. Keep a storage bin or bucket in the room with some of the things mentioned above. The safest place in your home may be in a bathtub in a central bathroom.
  • If you’re outside, seek shelter in a sturdy building immediately. If you live in a mobile evacuate to a safer location. If sturdy shelter can’t be found lay down in the lowest place possible, such as a ravine.
  • Monitor local radio and television broadcasts throughout the severe weather.
  • If you live in an apartment building move to the lowest level available.
  • In a vehicle, never try to outrun a tornado. Do not use an overpass or bridge for shelter — find a location where you can lie down low and flat.
