Inclement and severe weather emergencies are on the rise across the United States and other parts of the World. Severe weather is notoriously unpredictable. Over the years scientists and other weather experts have learned a great deal about the conditions that cause tornadoes and other inclement weather conditions and how these conditions often occur in different parts of the United States. Technology advancements have even lead to the development of elaborate and sophisticated warning systems, as well as extensive television and radio coverage of on-coming storms. Even with the advanced warnings and sophisticated technology of warning systems, hundreds are killed each year from freak storms, tornadoes and other natural disasters, with thousands more injured. Destruction and property loss is routinely in the billions of dollars. The best and smartest thing you can do for yourself and your family is to be prepared.
