FRED MCNAUGHTON -Our friends from noaa weather have some timely advice about what to do if a Tornado is in the forecast. Check out the entire post here.
WHAT TO DO…
In a house with a basement: Avoid windows. Get in the basement and under some kind of sturdy protection (heavy table or work bench), or cover yourself with a mattress or sleeping bag. Know where very heavy objects rest on the floor above (pianos, refrigerators, waterbeds, etc.) and do not go under them. They may fall down through a weakened floor and crush you.
In a house with no basement, a dorm, or an apartment: Avoid windows. Go to the lowest floor, small center room (like a bathroom or closet), under a stairwell, or in an interior hallway with no windows. Crouch as low as possible to the floor, facing down; and cover your head with your hands. A bath tub may offer a shell of partial protection. Even in an interior room, you should cover yourself with some sort of thick padding (mattress, blankets, etc.), to protect against falling debris in case the roof and ceiling fail.
In an office building, hospital, nursing home or skyscraper:Go directly to an enclosed, windowless area in the center of the building — away from glass and on the lowest floor possible. Then, crouch down and cover your head. Interior stairwells are usually good places to take shelter, and if not crowded, allow you to get to a lower level quickly. Stay off the elevators; you could be trapped in them if the power is lost.
In a mobile home:Get out! Even if your home is tied down, you are probably safer outside, even if the only alternative is to seek shelter out in the open. Most tornadoes can destroy even tied-down mobile homes; and it is best not to play the low odds that yours will make it. If your community has a tornado shelter, go there fast. If there is a sturdy permanent building within easy running distance, seek shelter there. Otherwise, lie flat on low ground away from your home, protecting your head. If possible, use open ground away from trees and cars, which can be blown onto you.
At school:Follow the drill! Go to the interior hall or room in an orderly way as you are told. Crouch low, head down, and protect the back of your head with your arms. Stay away from windows and large open rooms like gyms and auditoriums.
In a car or truck: Vehicles are extremely dangerous in a tornado. If the tornado is visible, far away, and the traffic is light, you may be able to drive out of its path by moving at right angles to the tornado. Otherwise, park the car as quickly and safely as possible — out of the traffic lanes. [It is safer to get the car out of mud later if necessary than to cause a crash.] Get out and seek shelter in a sturdy building. If in the open country, run to low ground away from any cars (which may roll over on you). Lie flat and face-down, protecting the back of your head with your arms. Avoid seeking shelter under bridges, which can create deadly traffic hazards while offering little protection against flying debris.
In the open outdoors: If possible, seek shelter in a sturdy building. If not, lie flat and face-down on low ground, protecting the back of your head with your arms. Get as far away from trees and cars as you can; they may be blown onto you in a tornado.
In a shopping mall or large store: Do not panic. Watch for others. Move as quickly as possible to an interior bathroom, storage room or other small enclosed area, away from windows.
In a church or theater: Do not panic. If possible, move quickly but orderly to an interior bathroom or hallway, away from windows. Crouch face-down and protect your head with your arms. If there is no time to do that, get under the seats or pews, protecting your head with your arms or hands.

FRED MCNAUGHTON -Congratulations to the WJTL Team! WJTL and it’s staff is the 2011 recipient of three prestigious Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters Excellence in Broadcasting Awards, received yesterday at a ceremony at the Hotel Hershey Garden Terrace Ballroom. Eddie, Lisa and Kristi represented WJTL (and were right smartly dressed in my opinion).
Here is the rundown on the awards…
• The Outstanding Radio Contest award to Kristi Leigh and the WJTL staff for the Single Parent Contest.
• The Outstanding Program Designed for Children to Lisa Landis and the WJTL staff for the 7th year in a row for The Kids Cookie Break.
WJTL is thrilled to be recognized by our Broadcasting peers in radio and television for positively impacting our community and our listeners with EXCELLENCE.
Thank you for your support and encouragement. Next time you see our staff congratulate them on a job well done!
FRED McNAUGHTON – One of the top questions we receive at WJTL is, “What was the name of that song you played yesterday at 8:05?” Followed closely by, “I’ve heard a new song a couple of times now and it has the words ‘Love’ and ‘Jesus’ in it. Can you tell me the title and who sings it?”
Now when you go to the playlist page at WJTL.com you can search by artist, songtitle, or even by day and time period you may have heard a song.
Do a search in the songtitle cell for ‘Grace’ or ‘Love’. You can even search by partial words. Or if you heard a song yesterday morning you can do a search between 6am and 11am yesterday (for instance) and find the song you’re looking for. Want to know how many time Chris Tomlin as been played recently? You can do that too with the new search favor. Check it out and put it through it’s paces. We hope it helps you find what you are looking for!

FRED MCNAUGHTON – Quick, grab your Bible and look up John, chapter 3 verse 6! You can do that because you have a Bible. Many believers throughout the world do not. WJTL and Bible League are joining to put 4951 Bibles into the hands of persecuted believers and we need YOU!
Please join WJTL and Bible League to put Bibles into the hands of our brothers and sisters, many of them poor, and many of them persecuted, who do not currently have a Bible of their own.
$5 can buy you lunch, or it can also put a Bible – printed, bound, shipped and delivered…into the hands of a believer who has never had one. Click on the Bible League Banner at WJTL.com. Your small donation will give God’s Life Changing Word in print, for the first time to a brother or sister in need.
Click here now to give a Bible to believer in need.
