Tim Ballisty, editorial meteorologist at weather.com, posted the following after the tragedy at the Indiana State Fair: ”There are lessons to be learned - the main one being we should all be weather aware especially when outdoors; taking the necessary precautions in advance of approaching severe weather."

"Knowledge is power. When attending an outdoor event, find out the weather forecast for the day beforehand and monitor the sky. Don't just leave the decision making to event officials. Use your common sense and take matters into your own hands. If you don't feel safe, do something about it. Seek safety and look after the well-being of your friends, family and others around you.”
