Please Prepare And Be Aware...Let's Break The Record

The longest stretch of days without a tornado fatality dates back to February 24, 1987 at 197 days.  The most recent tornado fatality on record today is June 24, 2012, which means we are currently at 192 days without a tornado fatality.  Currently the Storm Prediction Center is forecasting no severe weather in the next 8 days.

Folks, this is a record we want to break, and it looks like we are going to do it.  There were approximately 27 tornadoes on Christmas day (2012) with no reported fatalities.  Bravo to our National Weather Services offices and local media!  I feel confident that "situational awareness" is the reason lives were saved on Christmas day, and why we are on track to beat this record.

Please prepare and be aware... Spring is coming.  If you don't own a NOAA All Hazards Radioyou should. Click the link for a previous blog post on selecting one.
