Public Information Statement

Statement as of 5:00 am EDT on April 28, 2015

... Severe weather awareness week in New England and New York...



The National Weather Service... along with all the New England states

And the state of New York... have proclaimed the week of April 26th

Through may 2nd as severe weather awareness week.



It is very important to understand hazardous weather terminology in

Order to take proper action if and when severe weather threatens.



A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is issued... covering a large area (several

Counties and possible states)... and is valid for a lengthy period of

Time (4 to 8 hours) when conditions are favorable for the possible

Development of severe weather in the area. A severe thunderstorm

Includes damaging winds in excess of 58 miles an hour... hail of 1

Inch diameter or larger... or possibly a tornado. Severe thunderstorms

Also contain deadly lightning and heavy rain capable of producing floods.



A Severe Thunderstorm Warning will be issued by County for a

Relatively short period of time (hour or less) when severe weather

Is imminent or observed.



A Tornado Watch is issued... covering a large area (several counties

And possible states)... and is valid for a lengthy period of time

(4 to 8 hours) when conditions are favorable for the possible

Development of severe weather... including tornadoes.



A Tornado Warning will be issued by County for a relatively short

Period of time (hour or less) when severe weather has been detected

By Doppler radar or has been observed.



A Flood Watch is issued... covering a large area (several counties and

Possible states)... and is valid for a lengthy period of time (greater

Than 6 hours) when the threat of heavy rainfall during the course of

The watch period increases the potential for flooding that may

Endanger life and property.



In the mountainous terrain of the north country... heavy rain in a

Short period of time may lead to devastating flash flooding.



A flood or Flash Flood Warning will be issued when observed rainfall

Compared with local flood guidance indicates that flooding is

Imminent or when flooding is actually observed.



When your area is under a severe weather watch... remain calm but be

Alert for changing weather and be prepared to take immediate action

If a warning is later issued. When a severe weather warning is

Issued... take immediate action to protect yourself. If possible...

Go to a sturdy indoor structure. In a flooding situation... move to

Higher ground.



Despite great advances in weather detecting technology... a network of

Trained personnel and a host of severe weather products... each year

People die from weather related causes because they did not know

About the warning.



A battery operated NOAA all hazards weather radio with tone alert

Capabilities is one of the quickest and most reliable ways to

Receive severe weather information.



For more information on severe weather as well as forecasts and other

Weather information... check the National Weather Service web site at

Weather.Gov and for the Burlington office... click on Vermont.
