Prepare now, and be safe.

You should stay tuned to local weather forecasts. Make sure your NOAA All Hazards Radio is on and backed up by battery. If you don't own a NOAA All Hazards Radio, you should. Click the link for a previous blog post on selecting one.

February 10, 2013 Hattiesburg MS EF-4 Tornado Event

Here is the latest National Weather Service review of the EF-4 tornado that devastated Hattiesburg, MS  and the other tornadoes in the area on February 10, 2013.  I know a family from Hattiesburg who had damage at their home, but most importantly, everyone was okay.  The fact that no one was killed during this tornado, and the others that occurred that day, is an amazing testament to all weather and news related organizations, as well as spotters and chases, who prepared folks for the threat of severe weather, and warned them when it was happening.
