March brings thoughts of Spring, but it is also the start of the severe storm season in Illinois. The first week of March is storm preparedness week. This is a good time to check your emergency kits and make sure that you have updated them. It’s also a good time to make sure that you have multiple ways to receive severe weather watches and warnings. This can include your cellular phone, TV, Radio, and NOAA Weather Radio. Be sure to have a battery operated source in case of power outages. You can find more about how to prepare at https://www.ready.gov/plan.
