Columbus Severe Weather: App for That

by Maureen McCabe on April 10, 2013

Spring weather is here…

Suddenly it’s really spring in Columbus.  Is there severe weather headed to Columbus soon?  If there is, there’s an app for that!Area of Refuge sign City Hop Columbus 2011

The image was the sign on a door in a downtown Columbus residence at City Hop 2011.   “Refuge” an area for residents to take cover in storms.  

It started sprinkling when I was leaving Powell early this afternoon. We were talking about thunderstorms as we left the HER Realtors office after a meeting.

Shortly after I had an email… a media alert about severe weather with a headline : “Spring’s First Widespread Severe Storm System is Here: Are You Ready?”

The email said:

“Follow the instructions of state and local officials and listen to local radio or TV stations for updated emergency information. If a warning is issued, get indoors, and move to the center of an interior room on the lowest level (closet, interior hallway) away from corners, windows, doors, and outside walls.

Find valuable tips to help you prepare for severe winter weather at http://www.ready.gov/severe-weather and or download the free FEMA app, available for your Android, Apple or Blackberry device. Visit the site or download the app today so you have the information you need to prepare for severe winter weather.”

I put an app on my Android phone.  I found it searching the Play Store for FEMA.

Severe winter weather

Just noticed  the email  I received today says “Find valuable tips to help you prepare for severe winter weather.“  Recycling is good.   The  title of the email said “Spring’s First Widespread Severe Storm System is Here: Are You Ready?”
