Be prepared for severe weather
Each year, despite advance warnings, many people are killed or seriously injured by tornadoes and other types of severe weather. In 2012, there were more than 450 weather-related fatalities, and nearly 2,600 injuries. The recent tragedy in Oklahoma is a stark reminder that severe weather knows no boundaries and affects all it encounters.
