The Weather Bullies are a band of climate outlaws who can hurt you, your family, your friends and your pets.
They can destroy your home and ruin your town. Learn how to be prepared and stay out of their way.
Hurricane - (Whirly, Hurry, Ty) - The hurricane Weather Bullies are giant storms that rotate
counter-clockwise around a big eye out in the ocean. It doesn't matter if the hurricane is a girl or a boy. When a
hurricane gets mad, it charges for land and yells for the Weather Bullies gang to join as it
throws a tantrum and destroys everything around. Watch the news! Grab your family, pets and supplies and go
somewhere safe until these bullies leave town.
Tornado - (Torry, Whirl, Spout) - Just like in the Wizard of Oz, the tornado Weather Bullies are tall
twisting funnels in the sky that dips down to tear up anything they touch on the ground.
Listen to the news and have a plan to go somewhere safe with your family and pets immediately. If you hear
the twister howl and rumble like a train, don't try to outrun it. These cyclones are fast. Keep away from
windows and get low in a basement, interior room or ditch.
Lightning - (Sparky, Zap, Flash ) - The lightning Weather Bullies belong to a noisy and dangerous
group of electrical bolts that hit the ground during a storm. Stay away from open fields, water or big trees
so you don't get zapped. Go inside or get into a car with your family and pets until it has been 30 minutes since you last heard any racket from this bunch. And
lightning can strike the same place twice.
Flood - (Drench, Zone, Gulp) - The flood Weather Bullies are big, pushy water villains that covers
everything in their way and follow around the storm surge and hurricane. They can also show up
if there is too much rain or a dam breaks. Listen to the news and grab your family, pets and supplies and
get out of its reach until you hear it is safe to go back. Beware of flooded streets, ditches and electrical
Riptide - (Rip, Undertow , Grip) - The riptide Weather Bullies are silent, killer currents that will
grab you while you are swimming and pull you out to sea. The best way to get away from these creeps is to
stay calm and swim parallel along the shore, not towards the shore. If you see the red flags on the beach, stay close to shore.
Storm Surge - (Serge, Wave, Crush ) - The storm surge Weather Bullies are giant domes of water
that race to shore ahead of the hurricane and can drown everything in their path. They will flatten
buildings and chew up anything they see. If you live near the coast, grab your family, pets and supplies
and get out of the way early.
High Wind (Gale, Windy, Gust) - The high wind Weather Bullies come in all sizes and they can
sound like a bunch of screaming banshees when they blow hard enough. These squalls can bust windows and
push over trees, cars and houses. During hurricanes, they hang out on the edge of the storm's big
eye. Watch the news to see how bad the winds will be and grab your family, pets and supplies and go
somewhere safe until they leave town.
Wildfire - (Flame, Blaze, Burnie) - The wildfire Weather Bullies are fire brats that jump around
in the dry trees and grass thanks to high winds and drought. They can start by accident from a campfire or
on purpose by an arsonist. Once these hot heads get going, they can grow and are hard to stop as they burn
through forests and houses. Listen to the news and get out early with your family, pets and supplies.
