Thor Guard Lightning Prediction System

Thor Guard

This system can detect lightning within a 12-mile radius, and the warning will consist of a one 15-second blast of a horn and a strobe light will begin to flash. The horn and the strobe light are attached to the top of the concession buildings. The horn is audible throughout the park and the strobe light is visible.

When park-goers hear or see this signal, all activities shall be suspended; they should leave the fields and immediately seek an appropriate, safe shelter which includes large buildings, lightning shelters, automobiles/trucks, or tunnels with no standing water. Do Not Stay in Dugouts! People should avoid open areas, water, tall trees, metal fences, overhead wires and power lines, high ground areas, telephones and cellular phones, radios, and small, unprotected shelters like dugouts. Any one not following these guidelines and remains outdoors or in an inappropriate area or shelter will do so at their own risk.

The system will also detect safe conditions after a storm has passed and activities may resume only after three 5-second blasts of the horn are sounded, and the strobe light stops flashing.

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact Tom Kwiatek, Recreation Supervisor III, at (561) 243-7255 or kwiatek@mydelraybeach.com.
