Severe Weather Preparedness Week this Week

This week in the State of Illinois is Severe Weather Preparedness Week, as it is held every year during the first week of March. Chris Miller, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Lincoln, told Regional Radio News that this week is a reminder to be prepared all year long for severe weather.

He further stated they are putting a real emphasis this year on flooding, since flooding impacted several counties in the State from late December to early January. Miller says on Tuesday at 10 a.m., the annual statewide tornado drill will occur, as they will be testing communication systems.

Miller noted having multiple ways of getting information about the latest in severe weather is a way to keep you safe.
