Severe weather can happen at anytime in America, but we definitely know it can happen at anytime in Southern Maryland. Each year as a country we deal with natural disasters more than you would imagine.
STORM Averages for the USA
10,000 severe thunderstorms
5,000 floods or flash floods
2 landfalling deadly tornadoes
That is a lot of storms every year causing nearly $15 billion in damage and 650 deaths. This was an eye-opening fact for me when I read it, noaa.gov. The only thing we can do is to be prepared. You should always educate yourself on the weather risk you could face in the places that you live and work. Sign up for wireless emergency alerts and listen to the radio. Create a communication plan for work and home. Put together and Emergency Kit and make sure everyone knows what it includes and where it is. Be prepared so you can be safe!
