Communities can become StormReady by meeting certain National Weather Service standards on communications, NWS information reception, hydrometeorological monitoring, local warning dissemination, community preparedness, and administration. StormReady communities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education and awareness. No community is storm proof, but StormReady can help communities save lives.
