The first-ever National Severe Weather Preparedness week began last Sunday. As the week draws to a close we’ve seen weather-readiness touted by everyone from the President to on-air meteorologists at the Weather Channel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Even a determined Kindergartener, six-year-old Elena Schwartz, became a force of nature this week, lending her talents to the National Weather Service for a new (and improved) version of the Be a Force of Nature PSA. Match Elena’s enthusiasm and share the video with your social network.
