At WeatherNation, we're committed to educating and informing our viewers of all of the threats severe weather can bring. On March 1, the National Weather Service initiates their campaign to prepare us for all of the hazards the Spring season can bring. Severe storms can happen anywhere in the U.S. at any time. Each day through the first week of March, we'll highlight different aspects of hazardous severe thunderstorms and what you need to know to stay safe. In case you missed it, we covered Tornado safety on Tuesday, and the threats from Wind and Hail yesterday.
