Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:10 AM CST on February 26, 2017

Expires 7:15 PM EST on February 26, 2017


... Arkansas severe weather awareness week begins today...

Spring is the season when severe weather is most likely to strike.
Severe thunderstorms can form in a matter of minutes bringing large
hail, damaging winds, dangerous tornadoes, and deadly lightning.
These storms can also produce very heavy rain dropping several
inches in the span of an hour resulting in deadly flash flooding.

The Arkansas severe weather awareness week is the time to talk with
the public about how we can prepare for these severe weather risks.
This includes having an emergency action plan at home, school, and
the office. An important part of this plan is to make sure everyone
understands it and is ready to put it into action when necessary.

During the Arkansas severe weather awareness week, the National
Weather Service will review the most important aspects of severe
weather and highlight safety rules. Special public information
statements will be issued each day as indicated by the following
list. Newspapers and safety organizations can help to promote
awareness by printing and distributing the safety rules. The
broadcast media can also help to get this information to the public.

Sunday: introduction to the Arkansas severe weather awareness week
monday: severe thunderstorms
tuesday: flash flood safety
wednesday: tornado safety
thursday: lightning safety
friday: watches and warnings
saturday: creating a weather ready nation

The National Weather Service in Shreveport would like to thank
everyone involved in making the Arkansas severe weather awareness
week a Success.
