Get Prepared for Weather Emergencies

Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters. Flooding often occurs following a hurricane, thawing snow, or several days of sustained rain. Flash floods occur suddenly, due to rapidly rising water along a stream or low-lying area. Watch the video to learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe!

Tornadoes are violent: they can completely destroy well-made structures, uproot trees and hurl objects through the air like deadly missiles. Although severe tornadoes are most common in the Plains States, they can happen anywhere. Watch the video to learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe.

A thunderstorm is considered severe if it produces hail at least 1 inch in diameter or has wind gusts of at least 58 miles per hour. Every thunderstorm produces lightning, which kills more people each year than tornadoes or hurricanes. Heavy rain from thunderstorms can cause flash flooding, and high winds can damage homes and blow down trees and utility poles, causing widespread power outages. Watch the video to learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe.

Getting prepared may sound difficult or time consuming but – with a little help from the Red Cross – it’s actually very doable. Make sure to get a kit, make a plan and be informed. Watch the video to learn more about how to make sure you and your loved ones are prepared for any emergency.
