UNDATED (WJON News) -- Severe Weather Awareness Week continues Tuesday to help highlight best practices in the upcoming spring and summer weather seasons.

The next topic is “Thunderstorms, Lightning, and Hail.” Thunderstorms are a common warm weather occurrence but not every one is considered severe.

These storms bring rain, thunder, lightning, hail, and wind with them and are labeled severe when they bring large hail or winds at or over 58 miles per hour.

Because of these various overhead threats, the National Weather Service recommends finding appropriate shelter, such as a building with electricity or plumbing, or an enclosed, metal-topped vehicle with windows up, in the event of a thunderstorm.
