Lightning is a severe hazard that must be viewed seriously. Everyone should immediately seek shelter any time they believe lightning threatens them, even if a signal has not been sounded.
When Lightning is Predicted
A 15 second blast of the horn will signal suspension of all activities.
A red strobe light will begin flashing and remain flashing until safe conditions return.
You are mandated to immediately seek an appropriate shelter. You may resume activities only after three 5 second blasts of the horn are sounded and the red strobe light stops flashing. If you remain outdoors after the warning is issued, you do so at your own risk!
