Sub-zero temperatures are not making folks think of severe weather but this week is National Severe Weather Preparedness Week and March is National Severe Weather Preparedness Month.
Chris Miller with the National Weather Service in Lincoln says even though we're seeing unusually cold weather this week, this is the time of year when severe weather begins to become more and more likely. He's hoping folks will begin to think about what they will do if a tornado was to sweep through their community or even their home.
Miller recommends having an NOAA Weather radio in your home, which is a direct link to the National Weather Service and will have the latest on all the watches and warnings.
When you're listening to The Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM/106.5 FM WHOW or 95.9 FM WEZC, you'll be updated with the latest in watches and warnings thanks to a link directly to the National Weather Service.
