​​​​Lightning Alert System​s

Lightning is a threat to safety in southwest Florida. Several of our parks are equipped with the Eath Networks lightning alert system.

  • When lightning is detected within 10 miles a horn and strobe light activate. All outdoor activities must stop and you must seek shelter immediately.

  • All-clear is indicated by three 5-second blasts from the horn will sound and the strobe light will stop.
  • The web widgets below will indicate which equipped parks are on alert and when the all-clear has been given. You can Download the Weather app by Earth Networks for more detailed weather information.
