While many people may be glad that the snow has stopped falling, hopefully, we now have to be ready for tornado season. This weekend it was reported that a “deadly storm system” is heading towards many highly populated areas in the U.S.

This weekend, the deadly storm has already taken 7 lives, 3 being children, and will continue to take lives if we do not properly prepare. When a warning or watch is issued, get to a safe place immediately because these storms are very violent and have been reported to be hidden behind heavy rainfall or hail with winds up to 140 miles per hour. At this time, it has even been reported that baseball-sized hail has been seen.

Just this weekend, 26,000 houses were left without power and 28 roads were closed due to flooding in Mississippi. While these storms seem far away, they are progressively moving towards Ohio and Kentucky. During this season it is very important that we be sure to listen to warnings/watches and that we are always prepared for any surprise weather situations. For more information check out CNN.com.
