What You Need to Know About Summer Weather.
Summer means vacation, outdoor activities, and fun in the sun! The warm months and long days mean that there is plenty of time for baseball games, barbecues and beaches. But don’t let the sunny days and warm nights fool you. Summer also holds significant weather and water hazards. Heat waves can be lengthy and deadly. Lightning deaths are at their peak during the summer. Beach hazards can catch the unprepared.
Emergency preparedness during the summer months includes being prepared for floods, severe weather, beach hazards, drought, air quality, tornadoes, wildfire, heat, and lightning.
