Severe weather preparedness takes awareness, planning and then action.  You can't effectively take action in an imminent hazardous weather event unless you have some sort of plan in place, and you can't develop a robust hazardous weather plan unless you understand the threats you may face.  

Weather records in our region date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s and that history is full of floods, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and crippling winter storms.  The resources below are meant to help document and quantify some of these threats in order to help inform the planning stage of severe weather preparedness.
