Before we had access to things like radars, maps, satellites and sophisticated computer matrix that allow us to forecast the exact time, intensity and placement of thunderstorms, cyclones, tornadoes and more, predictions were based on guesswork and less of scientific proof.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) has been a reliable resource for warnings of impending wild, hazardous or detrimental weather carrying the potential for widespread disruption or even loss of lives.
When bad weather strikes—snow, heavy rainfall, fog, strong winds, hail, flash floods or severe storms, we all know what happens—deadly destruction all around.
Weather warnings are often specific in targeting location, allowing the people of that area to prepare and react in a reasonable way. Weather warnings provide possible impacts and appropriate calls to action that have advised people on how to respond when a threatening weather event is on its way.

How To Act On Weather Alert Notifications
Before storms, floods, strong winds, cyclones, hail and other extreme weather events raced through Australia and hammered its residents, BoM issued warnings but experts say that, “most people never used to heed the warnings but instead wait to watch the spectacles of the towering waves”.
For your own good, it is important you never ignore a weather warning. It’s better to prepare than be sorry. In case of impending severe weather, acting promptly is one of the ways you can stay safe and minimise the impact.
Here Are A Few Tips To Help You Protect Yourself:
- BE WEATHER READY: Listen to local news or weather updates from the radio and Storm Assist to stay abreast with the latest including weather watches and warnings.
- IN YOUR CAR: Staying in your car during stormy weather is safer than being in the open. However, it’s advisable that you drive to the nearest secure spot if you have the time to do so.
- AT YOUR HOUSE: Get to your home as fast as possible and stay at the safest spot in the event of a damaging storm or large hail warnings. If time allows, take your pets and valuable documents with you.
- OUTDOORS: Avoid going into sheds or storage areas during severe thunderstorms. Taking cover under a tree is also disastrous. The tree could fall on you or you could be struck by lightning.
- AT SCHOOL OR WORKPLACE: During severe weather warnings, stay away from windows. Also avoid large open areas like auditoriums, cafeterias or gymnasiums.
