D.U.C.K. in weather

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS A NEW ACRONYM TO REMIND CHILDREN AND ADULTS ALIKE THAT THERE ARE KEY SAFETY RULES DURING SEVERE STORMS – ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT MIGHT LEAD TO TORNADOES. THE ACRONYM IS DUCK – SHORT FOR: DOWN TO THE LOWEST LEVEL; UNDER SOMETHING STURDY; COVER YOUR HEAD; AND KEEP IN THE SHELTER UNTIL THE STORM HAS PASSED. THESE SIMPLE PHRASES CAN BE A QUICK REMINDER FOR ANYONE OF THEIR SAFETY PLAN DURING THE CHAOS OF A STORM.
