Texans are urged to become better prepared for severe weather all the time, and next week is set to highlight the issue.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has proclaimed March 2nd through 8th of this year as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Texas.

In his proclamation, Perry said “While dangerous storms can strike at any time of the year, the months of March, April, and May bring a greater potential for violent weather events, including damaging thunderstorms, hail storms, straight-line winds, tornadoes, and flooding. It is vital that all Texans be aware of the dangers they present.”

The Texas Department of Public Safety urges Texans to assemble a preparedness kit, which should include emergency supplies, including a first aid kit, a NOAA Weather Radio or battery-operated radio, flashlight, medication, non-perishable food items, and bottled water.

Texans are also urged to be aware of the nearest storm shelter locations, and to develop an emergency plan for communicating with family and friends, and deciding where family will go if an evacuation is necessary.

As always, during severe weather, keep your radios tuned to 790, KFYO and we’ll bring you the latest weather updates.
