Severe Weather Prepardness and Safety!

May 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

     With the recent severe weather outbreak in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvannia, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, it is extremely important that you stay tuned to NOAA emergency weather warnings pertaining to severe thunderstorms that can produce and create severe lightning, hail, straight-line winds, macrobursts (microbursts), Derecho events and tornadoes.  April thru June is the main season for severe weather in Tornado Alley and for areas to the east, such as the east coast, May thru early September.  

     The recent event was especially damaging in Connecticut with the National Weather Service now confirming that four (4) separate tornadoes and one (1) macroburst hit the State.  In all my years of severe weather tracking and recording, this seems unusual and maybe another indicator of climate change.  The National Weather Service also confirmed that four (4) tornadoes hit New York State and one (1) tornado hit Pennsylvania from this severe event.
