City earns ‘Storm Ready’ status
In the eyes of the National Weather Service, the city is now “storm ready.”
More than 2,000 cities across the country have earned the designation of being a “Storm Ready” from the NWS.
The designation means that the city has “planned for weather responses, provided weather training to staff and citizens, has redundant measures in place for communicating internally and publicly, and has methods to monitor and evaluate the impact of the weather on the community,” according to the city manager’s report and a presentation at a recent council meeting.
