If you're thinking about participating in outdoor activities this Memorial Day weekend, you might want to think again.

Emergency Management Specialist Jenna Chang says you should stay away from activities like boating, swimming, and more because of thunderstorms.

Chang says on Saturday, you might be able to get away with it, but Sunday and Monday aren't ideal.

If you are going to be outdoors, you should be extremely careful.

"If you don't need to be on the roads, stay home and enjoy the day at home,” Chang said. “Take Friday and Saturday to make sure you have all of your emergency supplies."

Chang adds your family should get an emergency plan together, and figure out where shelter will be in the house.
