DUCK in Weather

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS A NEW ACRONYM TO REMIND CHILDREN AND ADULTS ALIKE THAT THERE ARE KEY SAFETY RULES DURING SEVERE STORMS – ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT MIGHT LEAD TO TORNADOES. THE ACRONYM IS DUCK – SHORT FOR: DOWN TO THE LOWEST LEVEL; UNDER SOMETHING STURDY; COVER YOUR HEAD; AND KEEP IN THE SHELTER UNTIL THE STORM HAS PASSED. THESE SIMPLE PHRASES CAN BE A QUICK REMINDER FOR ANYONE OF THEIR SAFETY PLAN DURING THE CHAOS OF A STORM. THIS WEEK IS ALSO SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN KANSAS, A GREAT TIME TO MAKE PLANS FOR SAFETY DURING THE SPRING AND SUMMER STORM SEASON. THE NEXT CLOSEST STORM SPOTTER TRAINING WILL BE IN MCCOOK ON MARCH 26TH.
