Governor Bryant Declares Severe Weather Preparedness Week

PEARL – Governor Phil Bryant declares Feb. 13- 17 Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Mississippi.

Severe weather can include thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding, affects the state every year and is the leading cause of disasters in Mississippi. Last April 37 Mississippians lost their lives during a severe weather outbreak.

“We can save lives in Mississippi if we are prepared for severe weather emergencies,” said Gov. Bryant. “I urge all residents to have a preparedness plan in place and to maintain a stocked disaster supply kit.”

A severe weather emergency plan includes having a weather radio in your home or business so you can receive warnings if the power goes out or if it’s in the middle of the night. Families are encouraged to have a communication plan in place so you know where you will go and how you will contact each other before and after the storms hit. Everyone should also have an emergency supply kit stocked with things like flashlights, extra batteries, bottled water and non-perishable food.

“Take time during this week to have a conversation with family and friends about preparing for severe weather,” said MEMA Director Robert Latham. “We need to be prepared for disasters and severe weather at any time. We know severe weather will hit Mississippi again and the actions that individuals and families take can save lives.”

As part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week the National Weather Service will issue a statewide test tornado warning on NOAA weather radios at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday. Schools, government agencies and businesses throughout the state are encouraged to participate in the annual tornado drill.

“As technology continues to advance we are better able to issue watches and warnings further out during a severe weather event,” said Jackson NWS Meteorologist in Charge Alan Gerard.

“But residents must have a reliable way to receiving those warnings for these advances in technology to be effective.”
