... Public information statement for WV awareness week...

Today is the sixth day of the West Virginia severe weather
awareness week. West Virginia severe weather awareness week runs
through Saturday, March 25, 2017.

The National Weather Service, in conjunction with the West Virginia
governors office and the division of Homeland security and
emergency management will issue information about severe weather
in West Virginia throughout the week.

The goal of severe weather awareness week is to heighten everyone's
knowledge of the dangers of flooding, severe thunderstorms and
tornadoes, and to provide information to help everyone get prepared
for severe weather before it occurs.

Daily statements will be during the week. Your local National
Weather Service office will be available throughout awareness week
for questions.

Today's focus will be heat. Increasing your awareness will help keep
you safe during severe weather.

Heat is the most deadly weather-related cause for death in the
U.S. With an average of over 300 deaths per year, much greater
than all other weather related deaths.

Here are some heat safety tips.

1. Wear light clothes, sunglasses and a hat to protect yourself from
the sun.

2. Drink plenty of water at all times, even if you do not feel
thirsty.

3. Do not overexert yourself.

4. Eat light meals.

5. Stay out of the sun when possible.

More information on heat safety can be found on web at.

Www.Weather.Gov/rlx or call your local National Weather Service
office or the West Virginia department of Homeland security and
emergency management for further information.

We invite you to participate in this year's severe weather awareness
week Campaign. Spread the word, learn safety steps you can take to
protect yourself and family, develop a disaster plan.
