Listen to radio, television, or NOAA Weather Radio for the latest National Weather Service Bulletins.
Tornadoes are rare in this area but can and do happen here. We all need to be alert to the weather conditions, act quickly when a tornado is detected, and remain calm. You and your family should know in advance what to do if the civil defense warnings are issued.
Severe weather is a continuing possibility throughout the year with thunderstorms in the summer and snow storms in the winter. In either case, listen to radio, television, or NOAA Weather Radio for the latest National Weather
In case of severe weather, stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls. Protect your head.
