Perry Weather Lightning Warning System


Perry Weather Lightning Warning System logoA Perry Weather Lightning Warning System is installed at Hawkins Spring Park, Midlothian Sports Complex, Jaycee Park, Civic Center Park, Kimmel Park, Mountain Peak Park, and Midlothian Community Park. The system monitors the atmosphere's electrostatic energy as far away as 15 miles and evaluates the potential for lightning within a 10- mile radius. If an alert sounds all outdoor activities must cease and players and visitors should follow instructions broadcast on the public address system. Response instructions are posted at the concession stands near the entrance to the restrooms at each park.
