Each year, for the past 20 years, there has been an average of 50
tornadoes in Colorado.  On average, three people have been killed by
lightning and another 13 people have been injured by lightning. Some
of the biggest insurance losses each year are due to large hail.

The National Weather Service offices which cover Colorado will issue
a series of public information statements during the week covering
the following topics:

...On Monday...Watches and Warnings
...On Tuesday...Tornadoes and Tornado Safety
...On Wednesday...Flood and Flash Flood Safety
...On Thursday...Downburst Wind and Hail

The National Weather Service wants everyone to be part of a Weather-
Ready Nation.

Colorado is an annual host for tornadoes, flash floods, damaging
hail, killer lightning and wind damage. Are you weather-ready?

Now is the time to make sure you know how to stay safe when severe
weather threatens. Therefore, the week of April 15th to 21st has
been designated Colorado Severe Weather Awareness Week.
