... Fall severe weather preparedness week summary...

During the course of the week we have discussed several important
preparedness measures to ensure you and your loved ones remain safe
during severe weather. These include staying informed, having a
plan, and having a kit containing things to help you make it through
a tornado or other disaster.

Staying informed involves not only monitoring the weather for your
overall planning of activities, but also having a means to be
alerted should a tornado or other severe weather warning be issued.
This includes having a NOAA Weather Radio and at least one backup
means to receive warnings such as via Mobile phone alerts. This is
especially critical for nighttime tornadoes which are at least twice
as likely to cause fatalities as daytime tornadoes. In addition
flash flooding is especially dangerous at night. Always remember to
"turn around don't drown."

Your severe weather plan should include critical components of where
you are going to shelter and should also include a family
communication plan to address things like where your family would
meet away from your home in the event of an emergency, especially if
communication is not possible.

Your disaster preparedness kit should include enough water, food and
supplies to last you for at least 72 hours. It should also include
anything else needed due to the loss of the basic services of
electricity, gas, water and phone. For more details see

So be prepared for this fall severe weather season, and beyond.
While the frequency of the threat of tornadoes does decrease in the
winter season, tornadoes can and do occur every month of the year in
our region so be prepared! Additional severe weather preparedness
