Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week

The National Weather Service says  severe weather watches and warnings are ineffective if the public does not receive the message or is not knowledgeable of the safety procedures to follow.

This is “Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week” with the purpose to provide people with the knowledge necessary to protect their lives when severe weather threatens.

Whether in the form of severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, or flash floods, severe weather can develop very quickly.

Once a tornado approaches, or flooding develops, it is too late to start working on a preparedness plan. When severe weather develops, and warnings are issued, NWS says you should  take immediate action to protect yourself and family.
