We’ve all heard the saying “April showers bring May flowers,” but sometimes spring weather brings some unique weather that can be tricky. Though it is nice for those of us in cold-weather zones to end the long, cold winter, spring can bring dangerous and life-threatening conditions suddenly whether you are at home or travelling. A flash flood can suddenly block your path or a lightning storm can threaten safety at your child’s baseball practice. Your home or car can also be damaged by high winds or hail storms.
The National Weather Service has many resources to help you prepare for the wild weather that often accompanies spring. Some of the risky conditions you might run into include thunderstorms, tornadoes, wild fires and even rip currents and tsunamis, depending on where you are in the country.
It’s important to know what kinds of weather are common in your area and to have a plan to respond to them. Being prepared at any time is important since weather “changes on a dime.” The National Weather Service also suggests that you create a plan for your family to communicate in emergencies and encourage your local community to get prepared as well.
Certain Guardian Home Security Packages feature severe weather alerts that notify you when the National Weather Service releases a notice. To learn more about our packages and how they can help keep you safe during the wild spring weather, visit our website.
