Spring Has Sprung

Problem

A series of storm systems will bring major impacts to the Western, Central, and Southern U.S this week. Heavy rainfall and severe weather are expected with localized rainfall amounts exceeding one foot will be possible. The heavy rainfall could lead to flooding of rivers and urban areas.

Tornadoes, lightning, floods, rip currents and early season heat - Spring is three months of danger that can imperil the unprepared. It roars in like a lion, rampaging across the United States throughout March, April and May. And there’s one hazard that can strike the coasts at any time: tsunamis.
