OKLAHOMA – Severe weather season is here!
NewsChannel 4 wants to inform individuals of how to prepare and act quickly in case of severe weather.
Being prepared to act quickly could be a matter of survival. This is especially evident during the threat of severe weather. Even though severe weather can be anticipated days in advance, many in impacted areas say they did not have a plan and were caught unprepared.
Knowing your risk of severe weather, taking action and being an example are just a few steps you can take to be better prepared to save your life and assist in saving the lives of others.
Know Your Risk: The first step to becoming weather-ready is to understand the type of hazardous weather that can affect where you live and work, and how the weather could impact you and your family.
Check the weather forecast regularly, obtain a NOAA Weather Radio, and learn about Wireless Emergency Alerts. Severe weather comes in many forms and your shelter plan should include all types of local hazards.
Take Action: Before storms strike, develop a family communication plan, create or purchase an emergency supplies kit.
