Tennessee Severe Weather Awareness Week Focuses on Safety
As spring weather approaches, Tennessee’s emergency officials and weather forecasters are launching a campaign during the state’s Severe Weather Awareness Week to provide important weather safety information. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency, along with the National Weather Service and the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters, are conducting educational activities and drills this week.
Each day the NWS and its storm spotters network focus on safety tips for specific weather threats, such as lightning or flash flooding.
TEMA will also sign a new state Emergency Alerting System plan this week incorporating new technology to issue warnings to the public.
