*Effective 4/1/12, Thor-Guard Lightning Prediction systems are operational at the Flick Park south pavilion, by Attea Middle School (in the bushes north of the U-12 fields), and at the Gallery Park (in the bushes north of the pavilion).
Specific Thor-Guard information:
The Glenview Park District has installed THOR-GUARD Lightning Prediction Systems. The units are located at Flick Park Pool and the south pavilion, by Attea Middle School, Gallery Park northwest pavilion, Glenview Park Golf Club, Glenview National 9 Golf Club, Roosevelt Pool, Park Service Maintenance Facility, Community Park West, Westbrook and Apollo Schools. This system predicts when conditions indicate the potential for a lightning strike. It will give a warning eight to 20 minutes in advance of a potential strike, so that everyone can take shelter.
When it senses the potential for a lightning strike THOR-GUARD will sound a 15 second siren and the strobe light on top of the unit will go on. The strobe light stays on as long as there is danger of a potential strike.
When the THOR-GUARD sounds the warning siren and the strobe light is on:
When the potential for lightning has passed THOR-GUARD sounds three (3) blasts of the siren and the strobe light turns off. This may be as soon as 10 minutes after the initial alert.
The THOR-GUARD System helps to assess the conditions. Neither the signal nor the system is intended to guarantee that conditions are safe. If the weather is threatening and no warning signal is heard or seen, use good judgment and take shelter. Do not wait for the warning signal to activate, as the system can malfunction.
