Preparing for Severe Weather

From rain, to snow, to blowing dust, our weather has run the gamut in the past few weeks. According to the National Weather Service, it's only beginning; this is sort of an early launch into our severe weather season.

Severe Weather Information
Tornadoes, Winter Weather, Hurricanes: this section is packed with information that you can use when weather strikes.

You never know what the West Texas winds are going to blow in, but what we do know is that the National Weather Service along with a team of meteorologists and storm spotters are working together, to monitor conditions across the South Plains.

"The City of Lubbock is doing an excellent job as far as severe weather preparedness. There is a number of exercises that have occurred in the past several years that get agencies ready and working together to prepare for disasters. It's a very aggressive effort that's being done right now by the City of Lubbock", Ed Calianese, Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service said.

Communication between the media and the emergency response teams is key to alerting the public of severe weather in a timely manner.

"This allows us to make sure we are all on the same page and working together for the single purpose of helping to prepare our public", Ken Olson, Emergency Operations Coordinator for the City of Lubbock said.

So get ready, because storms here develop fast, and according to the National Weather Service, it's only a matter of time.
