The safest place during lightning is inside a sturdy building with plumbing and electricity. If this building is hit, the wires and pipes tend to disperse the energy more safely into the ground. If you are outdoors with no buildings nearby, your car is the next safest place during lightning. The outer metal frame disperses the electricity, preventing it from reaching the interior of the car. TORNADO SAFETY: During a tornado warning, go to the lowest level of the building, to the innermost room, and stay away from windows. WBAL-TV 11 Maryland Weather Radar

BALTIMORE– Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram said severe storms will develop Saturday night in Maryland.

The time is around 4 to 5 p.m. for scattered thunderstorms to appear, becoming more widespread from 7 to 8 p.m.

Ingram said there will be strong gusty winds and possible flooding in parts of Maryland. Thunderstorms will produce heavy rain with localized rainfall amounts of about 1 to 3 inches in an hour or two. Heavy rains over a short period of time can lead to rapidly rising creeks and streams as well as the potential for flash flooding in urban areas.

LIGHTNING SAFETY: If you hear thunder, it means the storm is less than 10 miles away and you are at risk of being struck by lightning. The safest place during lightning is inside a sturdy building with plumbing and electricity. If this building is hit, the cables and pipes tend to disperse the energy more safely into the ground.

If you are outdoors with no buildings nearby, your car is the next safest place during lightning. The outer metal frame disperses the electricity, preventing it from reaching the interior of the car.

TORNADO SAFETY: During a tornado warning, go to the lowest level of the building, in the innermost room, and stay away from the windows.
