Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:00 am EDT on April 27, 2015

... This is severe weather awareness week...

The National Weather Service in partnership with several New York
agencies including the New York state disaster preparedness
commission is promoting severe weather safety for all people.

On average severe weather has killed over 235 people per year across
the United States. On average... the National Weather Service on Long
Island issues 89 severe thunderstorm warnings... 7 tornado warnings
and 40 flash flood warnings each year. To reduce your chances of
being killed or injured by severe weather... it is important to
understand the meaning of severe weather watches and warnings.

Severe thunderstorms produce wind gusts of at least 58 mph... and or
hail of at least one inch in diameter... and or a tornado. A Severe
Thunderstorm Watch means that severe thunderstorms are possible in
and near the watch area typically within the next six hours or less.
You should continue with your daily routine... but be prepared to
move to a place of safety should a Severe Thunderstorm Warning be
issued. A Severe Thunderstorm Warning means that severe
thunderstorms are imminent or occurring. A warning implies a
significant threat to life and property. You should seek shelter
immediately when a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is issued. Our goal
is to correctly forecast at least 86 percent of all severe
thunderstorms with an average lead time of at least 19 minutes.

Tornadoes are violently rotating columns of air in contact with the
ground and attached to the cloud base above. Like a Severe
Thunderstorm Watch... a Tornado Watch means that tornadoes are
possible in and near the watch area typically within the next six
hours or less. A Tornado Warning means that a tornado is imminent or
occurring. A Tornado Warning implies an immediate threat to life and
property. Take shelter immediately. Our goal is to correctly
forecast at least 72 percent of all tornadoes.

Flash flooding is a rapid rise... within six hours... of water along a
stream or low lying urban area. The most common cause of flash
flooding is downpours associated with thunderstorms. A Flash Flood
Watch means that conditions are favorable for flash flooding.
Continue with your daily activities... but be prepared to head to a
place of safety should a Flash Flood Warning be issued. A Flash Flood
Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. Flood waters
can rise rapidly. Seek shelter immediately when a Flash Flood
Warning is issued. Our goal is to correctly forecast 76 percent of
all flash floods with an average lead time of 61 minutes.

NOAA Weather Radio all hazards offers the best way to stay in touch
with weather conditions whether at home... work or play. It provides
continuous broadcasts of weather information... with immediate relay
of any severe weather warnings. Noaa's National Weather Service
recommends everyone have access to a NOAA Weather Radio. For more
information on severe weather awareness... go to our web Page.

Tomorrow we take a look at severe thunderstorms.
