Being prepared for a storm usually means you need to know when a storm is coming. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has the best storm prediction system in the country. The Storm Prediction Center is part of the National Weather Service. mission is to provide timely and accurate forecasts and watches for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes over the contiguous United States. The SPC also monitors hazardous winter weather and fire weather events across the U.S. and issues specific products for those hazards.

SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park recommends the following tips for thunderstorm preparedness:

  • Know your area’s risk for thunderstorms. In most places, they can occur year-round and at any hour.
  • Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts.
  • Identify nearby, sturdy buildings close to where you live, work, study, and play.
  • Cut down or trim trees that may be in danger of falling on your home.
  • Consider buying surge protectors, lightning rods, or a lightning protection system to protect your home, appliances, and electronic devices.

At SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park we see a lot of water damage and fires from thunderstorms. We hope these tips will keep you safe and prepared.
