Do You Know When Yours Is?

2-13-2013 10-20-37 AMAs the spring severe weather season rapidly approaches, now is the time to begin to plan ahead and make sure you are prepared for the severe weather that could impact you this year. We have included a list of every state’s severe weather awareness/preparedness week. During the week of your state’s awareness week, make sure you check out your local National Weather Service Office’s website to get beneficial and life-saving information on effective ways to increase your chances of surviving severe weather. You can find your local National Weather Service Office at www.weather.gov. and click on the map in what section of the country you live. Note, not every state has an official severe weather awareness week, and some have not yet set their exact dates. Always check your local weather service office for updates.
