Severe Weather Preparedness Week Day One Tip

Today (Monday) is the first day of Severe Weather Preparedness Week, and the focus for today is on receiving weather information. Even when severe weather warnings are issued, for them to be effective they must reach the public. Many of those warnings are issued at night when people are sleeping. National Weather Service Meteorologist, Shelby Melto, says residents need to have a source of information that will wake them up if those warnings are issued when many people are asleep………..

Severe Weather Preparedness Week will continue on Tuesday with information on tornado safety, and the annual statewide tornado drill at 10 a.m.
