National Weather Service Gives Tips On Hail Safety

The National Weather Service received several reports of hail, some the size of a quarter, as storms blew through the area last week. Service Hydrologist Mark Fuchs with the National Weather Service shared some tips with us on hail safety.

“You want to protect your head—that’s the big thing,” Fuchs told WGEL. “Try to stay under a shelter, or indoors, or in your vehicle, whatever it is. That’s the biggest threat. And obviously, there’s the potential property damage. Cars that are outside, you might want to get them under a carport or a garage.”

Fuchs said that safety is the highest priority in a hail storm.
