Important Updates to Severe Weather Preparedness/Safety Tips and Sheltering Advice...

If you follow me on facebook, you already know that I made some very important updates to my severe weather safety and preparedness tips earlier today.

With the primary severe weather season rapidly approaching, I think this is a good time to start getting the word out regarding some important new recommendations for 2012.

The posts involved are shown here:

Creating a Severe Weather Safety Kit

NOAA Weather Radio Buyer's Guide

Seeking Shelter During Severe Weather

The changes to the "Severe Weather Safety Kit" and "NOAA Weather Radio Buyer's Guide" posts mainly dealt with updating new model information (on the radios), updating a few links, etc.

There are significant new recommendations made on the "Seeking Shelter During Severe Weather" post.  They have to do with hard lessons learned during the Joplin and Alabama tornado outbreaks of last year.  I've also added a section on making sure that you are able to receive weather warnings at night.

There will be additional updates and emphasis placed on this material as we move into the spring, but be sure to pass along the "heads-up" to friends and family members before severe weather threatens on a regular basis this year.
