Prepare-a-thon for Spring Weather

Prepare-a-thon for Spring Weather

Posted: Updated:

CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- Today, April 30th, is America’s Prepare-a-thon for Spring Weather. It’s a day that the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association (NOAA) takes very seriously. During the transition from winter to spring, early springtime heat helps fuel tornadoes, lightning, floods and rip currents around the United States. It roars in like a lion, often during the months of March, April, May and June. Being prepared is the single most important thing a person can do when severe weather hits.
