Severe Weather Awareness Week underway

 

 

It’s Severe Weather and Flood Preparedness week in Indiana.

It’s a time to get your plans together on how you will respond when storms and floods strike.

Daviess County Emergency Management Director Paul Goss says this is the first year that the National Weather Service has added flood preparedness to yearly awareness  campaign

 

When it comes to tornadoes, Indiana has over 20 per year, but Goss says so far, we are ahead of the game..

Tomorrow at 10:15 am and 7:35 pm there are storm and tornado test drills scheduled.  Emergency agencies and broadcasters will put out the warnings and everyone is being asked to put their emergency plans in place and act as they would in an actual emergency in order to be prepared when the storms do hit.  If there is stormy weather tomorrow, the tests will be rescheduled.
