Follow these rules:

During the event:

  • Set yourself a goal as low as possible and reduce your contact with the ground as much as you can. Don’t lie on the ground!
  • Avoid: tall objects, such as a tall isolated tree in an open area, fields, beaches or a water boat, any metal objects such as agricultural machinery, farm equipment, motorcycles, bicycles, etc.
  • If you are in the woods, look for shelter in an area with lower trees.
  • If you are in an open area, go to a low area, such as a valley.
  • If you are on a lake, get to the shore immediately and take cover immediately.
  • Avoid flooded roads (walking, driving)! A stream of water only 15 cm deep can unbalance you, and a depth of more than 30 cm can take a car “, say the people from ISU.
