Severe Weather Awareness Week

After a brief, yet exciting, thunderstorm this past Saturday, it is timely that May 4-9th is Severe Weather Awareness Week as celebrated by the National Weather Service. For each day this week, there is a specific focus on a particular type of severe weather that we experience here in the Pacific Northwest.

Monday, May 4th ~ Floods and Flash Floods
Tuesday, May 5th ~ Tornadoes and Waterspouts
Thursday, May 7th ~ Wildland Fires
Friday, May 8th ~ Watches and Warnings
Saturday, May 9th ~ All-Hazard, Weather Radio

Take a few minutes this week and evaluate how prepared you are for dealing with severe weather.
