Spring storms can be unpredictable. In the spring there are days in which we are closer to summer and other days where it snows! The changing weather during the spring can cause potential hazards that can be hard to predict/plan for since the weather can change rapidly, leading to the experience of many seasons in the same day! Mark Twain once said, “In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.”
Thunderstorms pose the most serious weather related threat during the spring. Thunderstorms develop when warm moist air collides with cool, dry air. Some of the dangers associated with severe thunderstorms include lightning, tornadoes, and flooding. Although the weather in the spring can change so quickly there are something you can do in order to prepare. Having a first aid kit and an emergency evacuation/shelter plan as well as keeping a 3-5 day supply of water and non perishable food are all measures that can be taken to prepare for the potential of severe weather in the spring.
