... Severe weather awareness week begins...

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. The National Weather
Service will be working in partnership with several agencies of the
New York state disaster preparedness commission and the New York
state broadcasters association to inform residents of the potential
dangers associated with flash flooding... tornadoes... and severe
thunderstorms.

We will also recommend ways new yorkers can protect themselves and
their families from those hazards. These safety tips will be issued
as public interest statements as well as facebook posts and twitter
feeds throughout the week. All media outlets are being urged to
disseminate these important messages to their readers... viewers...
and listeners.

Communications capabilities for warning dissemination will be tested
across the Empire state during a hazardous weather drill scheduled
for April 30th at 1:15 PM. These capabilities include the
National oceanic and atmospheric administration/S NOAA all hazards
weather radio /NWR/. Volunteer broadcasters will use this
opportunity to test the emergency alert system /eas/.

Internally... the communications drills will give National Weather
Service staff the opportunity to practice skills usually applied
under stress. Externally... the statewide drill gives public safety
and preparedness officials... the broadcast media... and all new
yorkers the opportunity to test their planned methods of receiving
emergency weather messages. Recipients of the test warning messages
such as schools... hospitals... nursing homes... businesses... and
individuals can use this opportunity to see if they are prepared to
deal effectively with sudden... dangerous weather situations.
Practicing our response to hazardous weather or flood threats can
pay big dividends when actual disasters occur.

Each day this week we will explore the many facets of severe weather
across western and north central New York... specifically...
Monday... severe weather terminology
Tuesday... thunderstorms
Wednesday... preparedness
Thursday... tornadoes
Friday... flooding
Saturday... communications
