Also, one should never touch an electrical appliance if it has dropped in water, and must turn off the power supply in such cases.
The advisory concludes by stating that one should have emergency lighting devices that can be used whenever needed.
In the event of an emergency, one can call 991 and also report the matter via the Kahramaa mobile application.
The safety tips from Kahramaa come at a time when reports of rain, as well as thundery conditions at times, have come in from parts of Qatar over the past few days.
Also, the season locally known as Al Wasmi - which is marked by spells of rain - began recently and will last for 52 days, according to the Qatar Met departmen.
Clouds move from the west to east during this period and rainfall at the beginning of Al Wasmi is usually an indication of a good rainy season, the department said recently.
