Severe Weather Preparedness

From extensive drought and heat waves to tornadoes and Superstorm Sandy, the United States experienced 11 weather and climate disasters in 2012, each with losses in excess of one billion dollars. 2013 was no stranger to extreme weather and climate conditions either, with seven billion-dollar disasters that included tornadoes in the Great Plains, Midwest and Southeast, persistent drought conditions in the West and devastating flooding in Colorado.

Are you ready? Make sure you have the supplies and information you need to stay safe if severe weather or another emergency occurs where you live.
