Emergency Preparation

As the nation continues to grapple with severe weather conditions throughout the High Plains and into the south, the American Red Cross is asking the public to immediately prepare for the potential increase in storm activity.


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued a warning for possibly another line of severe thunderstorms, which could unexpectedly develop into tornado activity. In the wake of this latest warning the Red Cross is issuing the following guidelines for storm preparation:

-- Make a plan for safe shelter -- It is important to know the safest locations to take cover from a storm at home, work and school. Locate a basement, center hallway, bathroom, or closet on the lowest floor where everyone should gather. The area should be windowless and free of objects that can become projectiles during high winds.
