Go ahead now and review your safety plans and also make sure that you have more than one way to receive your warning(s), especially since severe storms are expected to occur at night or during the early morning.

“IMPORTANT: Do NOT think if your area isn’t highlighted that you’re in the clear. This is where the *best* chances for severe weather to occur are located.

Take the time to make sure the batteries are fresh in your NOAA Weather Radio and tomorrow evening, make sure your cell phone is charged. Remember, we want you to have multiple ways to get warnings.

BE PREPARED: Before the Storm Strikes. (A message from Weather.gov)

At home and at work, your primary concerns are the potential loss of heat/AC, power, telephone service, and a shortage of supplies if storm conditions continue for more than a day. Test units regularly to ensure they are working properly. Have available:

• Flashlight and extra batteries.
• Battery-powered NOAA Weather Radio and portable radio to receive emergency information. These may be your only links to the outside.
• Extra food and water. High energy food, such as dried fruit or candy, and food requiring no cooking or refrigeration is best.
• Extra medicine and baby items.
• First-aid supplies.
• Have proper ventilation.
• Fire extinguisher and smoke detector.

In cars and trucks, Plan your travel and check the latest weather reports to avoid the storm!
