Winter isn't going to be around much longer, and many look forward to the sunny skies and warmer weather of spring. As most Kansans know though, spring is also prime tornado season.
Governor Sam Brownback will sign a proclamation Friday, declaring March 3-9 "Severe Weather Awareness Week."
"We hope that every Kansan has already prepared a home emergency kit and devised an emergency plan," said Angee Morgan, deputy director of the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. "However, if they haven't, this would be the perfect time to do so and make sure you and your family are ready for severe weather."
To help make emergency preparedness more manageable, KDEM has instituted an online “Kansas Preparedness Challenge.” Completing each monthly challenge makes participants eligible for a prize drawing. Go to www.ksready.gov and click on the “Kansas Preparedness Challenge” link to get started.
