Severe Weather Awareness Week

Mon, Apr 19th, 2010
Posted in Education

Severe Weather Awareness Week will be observed April 19-23, 2010. Fillmore County Emergency management would like to remind our residents to be aware and prepare for severe weather.

Thursday, April 22nd is statewide Tornado Drill Day. Fillmore County will participate in the statewide drill at 1:45 p.m. to allow schools, business, hospitals and other organizations to practice their emergency plans. Know the difference between watches and warnings. A watch means weather conditions are favorable. You should make plans to seek shelter immediately.

Warnings mean severe weather has been reported or is imminent. You should seek shelter immediately. Warnings are issued by county names. Make sure everyone in your business or home knows the name of the county you are in and ones that surround you.

Being prepared and staying alert is the key in planning for severe weather whether it is a tornado, lightening, flash flood, wind, hail or heat wave. If you would like more information on what to do in severe weather, contact Mike Ask, Fillmore County Emergency Management at 507-765-3874.

Note: Fillmore County will be activating weather alert sirens on April 22nd at 1:45 pm .
