Grandparents' corner

Trying to
be ready

As spring approaches my concern over stormy weather once again strengthens my resolve to become better prepared in the event that stormy weather turns to severe weather.

I decided to do a little research on recent weather patterns and what I found gave me pause.

Arkansas had 33 tornadoes last year. Six people lost their lives and 38 people were injured. The first severe weather outbreak was on March 10, spawning tornados, hail and high winds with devastating results to the central part of the state.

The last tornado of the year occurred on Dec. 31 in Washington County, killing four and leaving behind extensive structural damage.

Looking at these statistics made me realize I need to be prepared year round and not just in the spring.
