THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND THE MISSISSIPPI…ARKANSAS…AND
TENNESSEE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCIES ARE AGAIN ASKING FOR YOUR
HELP IN SPREADING INFORMATION ABOUT THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER AND
THE LIFE SAVING MEASURES TO BE TAKEN WHEN SEVERE WEATHER OCCURS.

SEVERE WEATHER WATCHES AND WARNINGS ARE INEFFECTIVE WHEN THE PUBLIC
DOES NOT RECEIVE THE MESSAGE OR DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO RESPOND TO
SEVERE WEATHER BY USING KNOWN AND EASY SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY
PROCEDURES TO PROTECT THEIR LIVES WHEN INCLEMENT WEATHER THREATENS.

WHETHER IN THE FORM OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS…TORNADOES…OR FLASH
FLOODS…SEVERE WEATHER CAN DEVELOP VERY QUICKLY. ONCE A TORNADO
APPROACHES…OR FLOODING DEVELOPS…IT IS TOO LATE TO START WORKING
ON THE PREPAREDNESS PLAN. WHEN SEVERE WEATHER DEVELOPS…AND WARNINGS
ARE ISSUED…WE MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO PROTECT OURSELVES.
PREPARING FOR SEVERE WEATHER IS THE THEME OF THIS PROGRAM.

THE PURPOSE OF SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IS TO DRAW ATTENTION
TO THE MANY ASPECTS OF SEVERE WEATHER WHICH AFFECT ALL OF US…TO
FOCUS ON SAFETY…AND TO LEARN WHAT TO DO WHEN HAZARDOUS
WEATHER THREATENS. AGAIN…SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IS FROM
MONDAY…FEBRUARY 21ST THROUGH FRIDAY FEBRUARY 25TH.
