Prepare for Severe Weather Hazards
Severe weather hazards in Phoenix typically consist of extreme heat and thunderstorms. It is important to recognize the dangers of extreme heat and the symptoms of heat-related illnesses such as dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke, and reduce exposure to the sun and heat during peak hours.
Thunderstorms can produce lightning, high winds, and heavy rains. A thunderstorm can cause hazardous localized flash flooding, and dust storms that reduce visibility and cause unhealthy air quality.
