An Alaska aviation expert says there are “no rules” about how you should handle a severe storm.
Alaska Aviation Weather Meteorologist Dan Kresser says storm clouds can cause a lot of damage, but they are not always deadly.
Kresser also said you should be prepared to deal with a severe weather situation, including getting a good night’s sleep, keeping your gear organized and using a backup power supply.
Kashmir Airlines says it is looking for an “inspiring, responsible pilot” to join its new Flight Deck Operations staff, but Kressers advice to pilots and passengers is to be prepared and to be careful.
“The best advice I can give is that we need to be aware of the weather conditions we’re dealing with, and to stay focused on the mission,” Kressier said.
The Anchorage airport has a 24-hour storm shelter and is offering an extended emergency response to storm clouds.
Alaskans can call 877-929-9000 to request a waiver for up to two days.
