In light of the severe weather outbreak last weekend; a refresher on severe weather alerts and what to do in a weather emergency might be in order. I would also like to share a link to a service I use personally that has been very useful. It is a text alert sign up for severe weather, school delays/closings and more. I have found this very helpful; especially when the power has gone out and I’m wondering if I may be affected by severe weather.
A Watch indicates the possibility of severe weather in a relatively broad area. For instance, a tornado watch means conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes. Go about your normal routines, but watch for threatening weather.
