NWS readies for severe weather season

NWS readies for severe weather season with Weather Preparedness Week

Posted: Updated:

The National Weather Service is gearing up for spring and is highlighting the importance of you and your family doing the same.

In 2013, there were seven weather and climate disaster events, killing 109 people. From tornado, to major floods, and the drought/heat wave in the west, mother nature had a firm grip on the United States.

This week is National Severe Weather Preparedness Week and NOAA and FEMA are working together to prepare for severe weather before it strikes.

Living in tornado alley means the threat is always present, especially in the spring. 24 were killed on May 20, 2013 and just 11 days later, another storm claimed eight lives.

In honor of Weather Preparedness Week, the National Weather Service is offering practical advice to ensure you, your family, and your property survive the storm.
