It’s Severe Weather Awareness Week

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 8th-12th across Wisconsin and Minnesota.

This time of year has a variety of weather including heavy rainfall, flooding, hail, damaging winds and even tornadoes. The National Weather Service is using this week to teach the public how to prepare for the worst.

“Probably the best tip overall is to have a good source of weather information,” Todd Shea, Meteorologist at the La Crosse National Weather Service, says. “It could be television, radio or an app on your phone. Just get alerted that there is severe weather.”

Depending on the upcoming forecast, a state-wide tornado drill will take place on Thursday, April 11.
