...Continuing Severe Weather Awareness Week for Louisiana...

Today`s topic is Severe Thunderstorms...

The ArkLaTex region is affected by numerous thunderstorms every
year. The strongest and most dangerous of these thunderstorms are
defined as severe thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms are
thunderstorms which produce damaging winds, large hail and
tornadoes. A thunderstorm is severe when it produces winds of at
least 58 mph, hail 1 inch in diameter or larger, or a tornado.
Severe thunderstorms can occur during any time, but are most
common during the spring.

To protect yourself and your property from severe
thunderstorms, it is important to stay abreast of the latest
weather conditions. Staying updated through NOAA Weather Radio
from the National Weather Service, as well as monitoring
television, radio and the internet, will help you be better
prepared for the dangers associated with any severe thunderstorms
in your area.
