Lightning Alert & Weather


Villas Online Weather Center

Lightning Alert Status:


Lightning Safety:

Villas Elementary is equipped with the WeatherBug Lightning Alert System. When the system detects lightning within 10 miles of the facility, the air horns sound an uninterrupted 15-second blast and the strobe light will activate. Villas staff, students and visitors who hear the horn and/or see the light need to seek shelter immediately. When the system no longer detects a threat, three 5-second blasts from the horn will sound and the strobe light will stop working. This is the signal that it is safe to return outdoors.

If the connection is DOWN, please follow the National Weather Service 30/30 rule until it is restored.
