Next week it is officially Spring and in Virginia...that means the threat of severe weather and the time to get ready now.
Kim Hylander with the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue says the most important thing you can do is invest in a NOAA weather radio. It has the most up-to-date information for weather watches and warnings for your area and offers evacuation plans and routes. You should also keep an emergency supply kit handy with important documents and contact information, medication, some clothes and other essentials. Get more on what to included and to do on www.vaemergency.gov.
If flooding does occur, always obey high water signs and if your community is evacuated, leave immediately.
