URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) - Expect as many eyes on the skies as on the scores tonight.
The weather has us asking how schools ensure that fans and players stay safe.
Aside from watching the radar, most schools have lightning detectors.
They can pick up lightning strikes within a 40 mile range. That gives athletic directors an idea of what's headed their way.
When it gets within 25 miles is when they start to worry.
Any lightning means a 30 minute delay.
Fans and players are supposed to seek shelter.
Many fields like the one here in Urbana don't have places for fans in buildings so they're asked to go to their cars.
In this case, Urbana's players would go to their locker rooms and Tecumseh's players to the weight room.
Now I asked if the school forces fans to leave.
The Urbana Athletic Director told me they can't make people go to a safer place.
"You have some people who just want to stay in the stands. It's not a safe thing when there's lightning around. It's not worth taking that chance. We really encourage people to go seek shelter, sit in their cars and we'll announce when the game's coming back on," said Chuck Raterman, Urbana Athletic Director.
The weather threat is nothing new for Urbana. The school had two games postponed last year.
I asked if the A-D thought we'd get the game in tonight.
