Are You Prepared For Severe Weather?

Region Weather is all about keeping you safe during severe weather. That’s the reason why we started several years ago–strictly to cover severe weather in NW Indiana where coverage isn’t always ideal from the Chicago stations. As we’ve evolved to cover ALL weather, ALL the time, we want to make sure our message of severe weather preparedness doesn’t get lost in the mix.

A perfect time to review and learn is this week! It’s Severe Weather Preparedness Week here in Indiana and while most of us assume we’re prepared for severe weather or that it won’t affect us personally, I highly encourage you to take a moment to actually THINK about your plan should severe weather roll into your neighborhood. Our local NWS office put together some great information for you! The following are frequently asked questions you may have:
