Had enough snow? Now get ready for other kinds of severe weather.

Had enough snow? Now get ready for other kinds of severe weather, including floods, tornadoes and tropical storms.

Did you know it’s National Severe Weather Preparedness Week?

In 2013, there were seven weather and climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each across the United States. These events included five severe weather and tornado events, a major flood event, and the western drought/heat wave. Overall, these events killed 109 people and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted.

During National Severe Weather Preparedness Week, March 2-8, 2014, NOAA and FEMA will highlight the importance of preparing for severe weather before it strikes.

Being prepared for severe weather doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. A few simple steps, such as having a disaster supplies kit, could help save your life.

During National Severe Weather Preparedness Week, we ask that you Be a Force of Nature

by knowing your risk, taking action and being an example where you live.
