Spring Weather

Spring is just around the corner and with the season comes a host of weather challenges. Tornadoes, lightning, floods, rip currents and early season heat – spring is three months of danger that can imperil the unprepared. It roars in every year like a lion, rampaging across the US throughout March, April and May. And there’s one hazard that can strike the coasts at any time: tsunamis.

Spring hazards include:

  • Severe Weather/Tornadoes
  • Floods
  • Lightning
  • Tsunamis
  • Rip Currents/Beach Hazards
  • Heat

We ask that you get weather-ready for spring with just a few simple steps:

  1. Know Your Risk

Check the weather every morning. It is a simple action that will ensure that you’re ready for

the day’s weather. Don’t leave home without knowing the forecast.


  1. Take Action

Assemble an emergency supplies kit with 72 hours worth of food and water. In an

emergency (such as after a tornado or some other hazard event), you may be stuck at

home without electricity for three days or more. Make sure that you’re prepared. Also,

ensure that everyone in your family knows how to stay in touch with an emergency

communication plan. This plan lists meeting places and alternate ways of communicating in

case of emergency.


  1. Be A Force of Nature

Inspire neighbors and family friends to be prepared for any sudden changes in the weather.



You are not powerless in the face of extreme weather and water events. Learn about the

hazards most common to spring – and some that are threats year-round – and what you can

do about them.
