Spring Weather Safety Campaign
March 6 - March 10, 2017
When it comes to severe weather hazards, the key to successful response - and survival - is preparedness. Every year, the National Weather Service (NWS), local officials and emergency managers throughout Southeast Texas set aside the first full week of March to review Severe Weather Preparedness. This coincides with the kickoff of the Spring Weather Safety national campaign.

During Severe Weather Awareness Week, the National Weather Service highlights various aspects of severe weather safety when dealing with thunderstorm related hazards.  This website is designed to serve as a guide to the dangers of severe weather hazards and their impacts on southeast Texas. It will include information on what safety precautions to take when dealing with various severe weather threats including flash flooding, tornadoes, hail, high winds and lightning. The site also includes important information regarding a mock tornado drill planned for March 8th, 2017 at 10 AM, which is a great opportunity to test tornado emergency plans at homes, schools and businesses.
