Pedestrians should not approach or touch any electricity poles.

Sailors should avoid any marine activities due to the bad weather.

Drivers should follow traffic instructions, avoid excessive speeds, take care while driving and keep a safe distance between cars.

The EMA recommend drivers not to park cars under trees, billboards and advertisements and that pedestrians keep away from them.

People should avoid exposure to air currents to avoid catching a cold, and stay away from any area with heavy rainfall, especially due to the risk of lightning.

Windows must be kept closed during a thunderstorm.
