It's Severe Weather Awareness Week in Minnesota, designed to remind and educate everyone about the seasonal threats from severe weather and how to best prepare for them.

It is also a great time to make and practice your emergency plan, and build or refresh your emergency preparedness kit.

Each day will focus on a different aspect on severe weather safety for the summer ahead.

  • MONDAY:  Alerts & Warnings
  • TUESDAY:  Severe Weather, Lightning, and Hail
  • WEDNESDAY:  Floods
  • THURSDAY:  Tornadoes
  • FRIDAY:  Extreme Heat

Every spring the National Weather Service, the Minnesota Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and other state, county and local agencies come together to host Severe Weather Awareness Week activities.

We will have more information focused on the daily topics all week. Plan ahead and stay safe this summer.
