Don't Panic in a Southern California Thunderstorm

Though the communities of Southern California do not often experience thunderstorm conditions, there are several pieces of information useful to know when and if one occurs. 

  • "If Thunder Roars, Go Indoors"

The American Red Cross issued this safety guideline as a general rule of thumb. To ensure safety, it is recommended to stay indoors until 30 minutes after the last thunder clap have passed.

  • If you are stranded outdoors

In the unlikely event you are not able to safely reach shelter, avoid the following; high ground, water, tall/isolated trees and metal objects. 

  • Operating Electrical Appliances & Equipment

During a thunderstorm, it is highly recommended to only operate battery powered devices. Using grounded electrical equipment could result in shock and/or severe damages.

After a disaster, SERVPRO of Cerritos/Hawaiian Gardens is here to help you and your loved ones get back on your feet and your home restored.
