Severe Weather Week – Communication


Throughout the week we have discussed many specifics when it comes to severe weather; thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods, and being prepared.  What we haven’t covered is the many ways to receive severe weather updates.  This information is critical in the event of severe weather and you need to be informed.  There are many ways to receive National Weather Service warnings, they are listed below.

  • Media-Turn on the television or radio
  • Internet-Get up to date warnings and view radar
  • Cell phones-many weather apps available
  • Wireless Emergency Alert System-available in newer cell phones, this feature is built directly into the cell phone and will send warnings straight to your phone, if you are in the coverage area
  • NOAA Weather Radio-provides continuous weather reports and can automatically alert you when severe weather is threatening

There are many vehicles for communication, do not just rely on one as your sole means of information as it is always best to use multiple resources.

This concludes Severe Weather Week, I hope the information provided has been helpful and will help you and your families be prepared when severe weather strikes in the coming months.
