Be prepared for thunderstorms and lightning! Make sure you know your area’s risk for thunderstorms. In most places, they can occur year-round and at any hour. Be sure to sign up for your community’s warning system. In addition, The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts.
