Did You Feel Prepared for Missouri’s Severe Weather? [POLL]

Severe Weather
Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency Facebook

Severe thunderstorms, 60 mph winds and hail the size of ping pong balls battered Mid-Missouri on Monday (May 20).  The nasty weather included a small tornado in Pettis County and Tornado Warnings for Sedalia, LaMonte, Smithton and Green Ridge.  Some lost power and others sustained damage to their homes and vehicles.  Those that were prepared for the weather rode the storm out and may have been a little more at ease than those who were not prepared for the severe weather.

Tornadoes are simply part of living in the Midwest.  Many of us have had a close call or may have witnessed a tornado touchdown firsthand.  We know that having flashlights, a radio and a safe place to take shelter is a must, along with first aid materials and non-perishable food and water. Still, according to an Adelphi University Center for Health Innovation survey, 44% of adults don’t have a first aid kit in their home, 48 percent lack basic emergency supplies and 53 percent haven’t stocked up on the recommended three-day supply of nonperishable food and water.

Did you feel prepared for the recent severe weather?  Compared to the devastation in Oklahoma, Missourians were pretty lucky, but what if that luck ran out?  Think about what happened Monday and let us know if you were ready for it.

Remember, you can always tune in on the air and listen online for the latest weather updates, and check our weather page for the latest radar.  Be sure you know where your nearest storm shelter is by viewing our storm shelter map.
