Public Information Statement

Statement as of 8:00 AM EST on March 01, 2015


Severe weather preparedness week in North Carolina is March 1-7, 2015
statewide tornado drill scheduled for Wednesday... March 4 at 9:30 am

This week is North Carolina's annual severe weather preparedness
week. This week the National Weather Service and the North Carolina
department of public safety are teaming up to bring this severe
weather safety Campaign to all of North Carolina's residents. With
warmer weather quickly approaching... now is the time to prepare for
the severe weather season. If each North Carolina resident would
take a few moments this week to learn about severe weather safety and
implement a safety plan... then we would all be better off when severe
thunderstorms and tornadoes inevitably strike our state... and the
likelihood of injury and fatalities caused by severe weather could be
minimized.

Severe weather and severe weather preparedness takes many forms... so
each day this week we will highlight a different preparedness topic.
This week's topics will include...

Monday: severe thunderstorms and tornadoes

Tuesday: ways to receive severe weather alerts... and information
about the statewide tornado drill

Wednesday: staying safe when high winds... hail... and tornadoes
strike

Thursday: lightning safety

Friday: flash flood safety

Saturday: make a plan and encourage others to do the same

On Wednesday... March 4th at 9:30 am... the National Weather Service in
cooperation with local broadcasters will conduct a statewide tornado
drill. The alarm test... which will come in the form of a required
monthly test... will activate the state emergency alert system and be
carried by local radio broadcasters. Every school... business..and
residence is encouraged to participate in this drill. It's really
easy: at 9:30 am on Wednesday... take a few moments to practice your
severe weather safety plan... and seek shelter for a few minutes as if
a tornado was headed your way. Practicing this when the weather is
good will allow you to react more quickly when the weather turns bad.

Finally... take a few moments this week to visit the North Carolina
department of public safety's preparedness website: readync.Org. On
this web Page you will find an abundance of information... and links
to a free cell phone app... that will help you plan and prepare for
the severe weather season. Once again... that's readync.Org.
