TIPS: Safety tips for driving in the rain

Stacey and J Sbu have some tips for you on how to stay safe in severe weather conditions. Have a look below: 

  • GET IN - If you are outside, get inside. If you're already inside, get as far into the middle of the building as possible.
  • GET DOWN - Get underground if possible. If you cannot, go to the lowest floor possible.
  • COVER UP - Flying and falling debris are a storm's number one killer. Use pillows, blankets, coats, helmets, etc to cover up and protect your head and body from flying debris.
