Severe weather preparation
Severe weather can happen anytime, in any part of the country. Severe weather can include hazardous conditions produced by thunderstorms, including damaging winds, tornadoes, large hail, flooding and flash flooding, and winter storms associated with freezing rain, sleet, snow and strong winds. To make sure you are always prepared, develop an emergency plan based on your local weather hazards and practice your plan.

PREPARE, PLAN AND STAY INFORMED FOR EMERGENCIES

72 hours, Is your family prepared?

A disaster supply kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.

Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them.

This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours.
