The week of March 4-8, 2013 has been designated as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Pennsylvania.
The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness of the hazards severe weather poses to the public and to provide safety information in an effort to keep you and your family safe.
Each day this week, different hazards are highlighted and safety tips are provided. Tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and flooding – both river and flash are discussed.
This is brought to the residents of Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA), County Emergency Management Officers and the National Weather Service (NWS). Please check back each day this week for a different weather event type.
