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.

TORNADOES

Meteorologist Lucy Bergemann explains how the National Weather Service determines these ratings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXWNFD258M&t=3s   Landspouts may be small, but they can pack a big punch.

Learn more about what they are and how to stay safe with Meteorologist, Kara James. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB5xhwqlHdQ   In addition to landspouts and waterspouts, there are several other kinds of tornadoes to be aware of.
