... Severe weather campaigns to begin soon for our region...

Tornadoes, large hail, flash flooding and damaging thunderstorm
winds increase in likelihood each Spring across our region. In
preparation for those events the NWS in cooperation with its
partners in emergency management, the media and others, conducts
severe weather preparedness campaigns during the late winter each
year. The intent of each Campaign is for everyone, whether
individuals or businesses or agencies, to use this time to learn
about severe weather and the associated safety measures.

A key part of each Campaign is the tornado drill. This year we are
emphasizing participation in the tornado drills. To promote
participation we are asking everyone who is willing to participate
to indicate as such at www.Weather.Gov/pah/iwilltornadodrill. A
certificate of participation will be emailed to participants
following the drill.

Here are the particulars for each of our region's state
campaigns:

Kentucky March 1-7 Mar 3 - 9:07am CST rwt
