CCFA Weather Policy

 

Lightning & Thunder

  • If lightning is within 5 miles, with or without hearing thunder, game/practice should be suspended and shelter sought.
  • A rough guideline is to measure the time between the lightning flash and hearing the thunder.  If it is 30 seconds or less, seek shelter.
  • A simple rule: If you can see it or hear it, clear it!  CCFA recommends seeking immediate shelter in cars or in a designated severe weather shelter.
  • Avoid contact with metal or other conducting materials to the outside surfaces.
  • Do not stay in open, unprotected areas.
  • Games/practices should not be started for at least 30 minutes after the last lightning strike is seen or roll of thunder is heard.
