Thunderstorm Safety Tips for Abbeville, New Iberia, & Lafayette

  • Don’t run water during a storm. Even taking a shower can provide a conduit for electricity.
  • Get to a shelter ASAP during a storm, preferably one that has plumbing or wiring to ground it from lightening. If there isn’t any building nearby, retreating to a car is better than having no shelter at all.
  • Close blinds during severe thunderstorms to help protect yourself from breaking glass.
  • Unplug appliances during storms. Consider getting surge protection in Abbeville  to protect your electronics from irreparable harm.
  • If you notice a downed power line do NOT approach it. Just report it to the power company.

Even though you may know many of these electrical safety tips already, it doesn’t hurt to be reminded from time to time.
