Cabildo de Tenerife



In case of a storm , the Government of the Canary Island's Central Office for Safety and Emergencies, via the Coordinating Centre for Emergencies and Security 112, makes the following recommendations :

  • Stay safe inside a building. When at home, close all doors and windows because air-currents attract lightning.
  • Unplug all electrical appliances and television antennas.
  • Avoid structures and metal objects.
  • When in the countryside, the safest areas are hillsides; avoid ravine beds and the tops of mountains and hills.
  • Do not take refuge under a tree, in a tent, or in small buildings such as barns and sheds.
  • Try to stay dry.
  • If it is raining, be very careful. If walking or driving, don't stop in areas where large amounts of water may accumulate
