Links to severe weather and disaster preparedness resources

The best advice is to ALWAYS be prepared for severe weather conditions in your area. While the media does an excellent job of making us aware of threatening weather, night time leaves all of us at our most vunerable. The best way to protect yourself and your family at night is to own and maintain an NOAA Weather Radio Receiver. These inexpensive radio receivers will alert you to approaching severe weather and other hazards - even at night.
