... Severe weather preparedness week starts today...

The National Weather Service Caribou, Maine has declared April 26th
through may 2nd as severe weather preparedness week. Each day during
the preparedness week will feature information about a different
severe weather related topic.

New England will quickly transition from early Spring weather to
more Summer like weather patterns over the next several weeks.
Along with the warmer weather comes an increasing threat of
thunderstorms, and with it comes the threat for severe weather. Are
you prepared for severe weather? Do you know where and how to
receive forecasts? Do you know how to receive warnings and watches
for severe weather? Do you know what to do during and after severe
weather impacts you?

... Take action...

Thunderstorms may be beautiful, but they can also be deadly. They
can produce lightning, damaging wind, hail, tornadoes and flooding.
All of these can result in injury, death, and/or property damage.
Knowing when thunderstorms are likely to impact your area is key to
staying safe. Check www.Weather.Gov/car daily, get a weather app on
your phone, or tune into your local news. Identify safe places to
shelter from a storm throughout your day. If you are at home, work
or school, identify locations away from windows and electrical
appliances. If you are going to be outside, know where the nearest
enclosed building is located and go there at the first sign of a
storm. If no building is available, the next best option is to get
inside a car with the windows rolled up. If you are driving and
encounter water covering the roadway, turn around and find another
Route to your destination. By understanding the risks posed to you
by thunderstorms you can take steps to keep yourself and loved ones
safe. For safety information visit www.Weather.Gov/om/severeweather.
