Severe Weather Awareness Week

By Margaret Allen
This week April 19th through the 23rd is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Pennsylvania. It's imperative that we be prepared for hazardous weather, be it a thunderstorm with frequent lightning, floods, high winds, or even a tornado. There are important safety measure to keep in mind and abide by during severe weather: If you are outside, get inside. If you're already inside, get as far into the middle of the building as possible. Get underground if possible. If you cannot, go to the lowest floor possible and cover up, flying and falling debris are a storm's number one killer. Make plan ahead of time and practice your plan with your family.
