Spring Weather Media Release
For Immediate Release: March 14, 2018
Spring-like Severe Weather Hits Ohio Early
Severe Weather Awareness Week is March 18-24
COLUMBUS, OH – Spring officially begins on March 20, but Ohio and other states in the Midwest received a good dose of spring-like severe weather last month. Continuous heavy rains and severe storms started on February 18, causing many Ohio rivers to flood and crest well above their flood stages. Flooding occurred in multiple Ohio counties, most notably those along the Ohio River.
On February 24, Governor John R. Kasich declared a State of Emergency for 17 counties due to severe flooding. Other notable severe weather events last month include:
In a coordinated effort with the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA), Gov. Kasich is proclaiming March 18-24 as Severe Weather Awareness Week and encourages all Ohioans to learn what to do to protect themselves from spring and summer weather hazards and home emergencies.
“Ohio has gone full circle with severe weather hazards over the last four months,” said Sima Merick, executive director of Ohio EMA. “We’ve had a record-making November day with 17 tornadoes; six of which were the strength of EF2. We’ve had winter storms that created blizzard conditions; a record day of heat in February, and major flooding of Ohio rivers.
“If you haven’t already prepared for weather emergencies, Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week would be the ideal time. Have emergency plans for the different hazards that can occur. Conduct tornado and fire safety drills. Make emergency supply kits for your home, your car, or in case you need to evacuate. Consider purchasing flood insurance.”
As part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, as coordinated by OCSWA, the state of Ohio will participate in a statewide tornado drill and test its Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday, March 21 at 9:50 a.m. During this time, Ohio counties will sound and test their outdoor warning sirens. Schools, businesses and households are encouraged to practice their tornado drills and emergency plans.
What Can Ohioans Do During Severe Weather Awareness Week?
During tornado drills or actual tornado warnings, remember to DUCK!
Many Ohio counties have outdoor warning sirens that sound during severe storm and tornado warnings. During storm watches or warnings, listen to your NOAA Weather Radio or your local news for up-to-date weather information.
People also receive notification of severe weather and other emergencies through their cellphones and mobile devices. Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency texts sent by authorized government alerting authorities. WEAs can notify you of extreme weather warnings, local emergencies requiring evacuation or immediate action, AMBER Alerts, and Presidential Alerts.
