HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- If you are braving the conditions and taking your children trick-or-treating outdoors tonight, police from communities across the Tennessee Valley are urging you to use extra caution.
They recommend you and your kids carry glow sticks or flashlights – they said it makes it easier for drivers to see pedestrians.
Remember to keep an umbrella or a raincoat on hand. Just because you may see a break in the rain, that doesn't necessarily mean it's over.
Here are a few basic Halloween safety tips you should use regardless of the weather:
Children Should: Cross only at corners or marked crosswalks, never cross the street between parked vehicles, never go into a stranger's house, watch out for cars backing or turning, wear bright colored clothing and use a flashlight.
