Lightning Warning – Main & Hecht Park

Lightning is a severe hazard that must be viewed seriously. Park users should STOP PLAY and SEEK SHELTER immediately when lightning threatens – EVEN IF A SIGNAL HAS NOT BEEN SOUNDED. Park users will be warned by one prolonged horn blast signaling a strong risk for lightning in the area. All patrons should immediately seek shelter in enclosed vehicles or buildings. The strobe light signals a continuing lightning alert condition. Three short horn blasts signal it’s safe to resume activities. Please note that there are two audible warnings. If you hear a warning and continue to play, you do so at your own risk.
