Watch vs. Warning

A TROPICAL STORM WATCH is an announcement for specific coastal areas that tropical storm conditions are possible within 36 hours.

A TROPICAL STORM WARNING is a warning that sustained winds within the range of 34 to 63 kt (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hour) associated with a tropical cyclone are expected in a specified coastal area within 24 hours or less.

A HURRICANE WATCH issued for your part of the coast indicates the possibility that you could experience hurricane conditions within 36 hours. This watch should trigger your family's disaster plan, and protective measures should be initiated, especially those actions that require extra time, such as securing a boat or leaving a barrier island.

A HURRICANE WARNING issued for your part of the coast indicates that sustained winds of at least 74 mph are expected within 24 hours or less. Once this warning has been issued, your family should be in the process of completing protective actions and deciding the safest location to be during the storm.

Lightning Safety for Residents


THE 30/30 RULE

Lightning can strike more than ten (10) miles away from the center of a thunderstorm, beyond the audible range of thunder.  Therefore, if you hear thunder, you are within striking distance of the storm.

Seek shelter if the "flash-to-bang" delay (length of time in seconds from the sight of the lightning flash to the arrival of its subsequent thunder), is 30 seconds or less, and that they remain under cover for 30 minutes after the final clap of thunder.

A 30 second lead time is necessary prior to the storm's arrival because lightning often strikes ahead of the storm center. A 30-minute wait after the last thunder is heard is necessary because the trailing storm clouds still carry a lingering charge.  This charge can and does occasionally produce lighting on the back edge of the storm, several minutes after the rain has ended.

MiraBay Policy

If thunder is heard, the staff must immediately clear the resort pool, deck, and playground.  These areas must remain closed for 30 minutes after the final clap of thunder.
