...Severe Weather Awareness Week in Arkansas Begins Today...

The National Weather Service, in cooperation with the Arkansas 
Department of Emergency Management, has proclaimed the week of 
February 28th through March 6th as Severe Weather Awareness Week 
in Arkansas. 

Citizens are urged to use this week to understand the hazards of 
severe weather, and to review the safety rules which they can use 
to protect themselves when severe weather occurs. 

A particular subject will be discussed each day. 

Thursday...Severe Thunderstorms
Friday...Watches and Warnings
Saturday...Storm Reports

During Severe Weather Awareness Week, the National Weather Service 
is asking people to think about where they would go when severe 
weather threatens. So, if a Tornado Warning was issued, people 
should know where to go for safety without hesitation. 

In general, the safest place is a building on a permanent foundation 
on the lowest floor in an interior room. The idea is to put as many 
walls between yourself and the outdoors.

that occurred in 2020...
