As we turn the corner past  Memorial Day, Minnesota heads into the teeth of severe weather season.  Todd Krause, severe weather warning coordinator with the National Weather Service says it is important to pay attention to weather information as conditions change.

“When it comes to warnings, have more than one way to get a warning. A lot of people rely just on their phones. But there are going to be times when you don’t get a warning that way. So make sure you have more than one way of getting a warning.”

Krause says, even if you miss an official warning, once you hear the thunder start, make sure you have a plan for how to keep you and your family safe in the event of strong weather.
