... Severe weather awareness week continues...

The National Weather Service and the New York state office of
emergency management have proclaimed April 26 through may 2 severe
weather awareness week in New York state.

To reduce your chances of being killed or injured by severe
weather... it is important to understand the meaning of severe
weather watches and warnings.

Severe thunderstorms are defined as those thunderstorms that produce
winds of 58 mph or greater and/or hail of one inch in diameter or
larger.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means that severe thunderstorms
are possible over the next several hours.

A Severe Thunderstorm
Warning means that severe thunderstorms are imminent or occurring.
You should seek shelter immediately when a Severe Thunderstorm
Warning is issued.

Even if a thunderstorm is not considered severe...
it is always a good idea to go indoors since lightning is a
potential threat. By definition... all thunderstorms contain
lightning. All lightning is dangerous.

A Tornado Warning means that a tornado is imminent or occurring.
Take shelter immediately in a sturdy building away from windows
which can shatter.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
Flood waters can rise rapidly. Move to higher ground immediately
when a Flash Flood Warning is issued.

NOAA Weather Radio offers the best way to stay in touch with extreme
weather conditions 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Your National
Weather Service highly recommends everyone have access to a NOAA
Weather Radio.
