NWS to Host Severe Weather Awareness Courses


Tennessee’s Severe Weather Awareness Week is Feb. 19-25, 2023.

The National Weather Service of Nashville will be hosting a series of virtual training courses throughout the week and will meet in person for Severe Weather Awareness Day on Saturday Feb. 25.

It will be from 9am – 4pm at Trevecca Nazarene University.

Some basic severe weather advice from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) includes:

  • Never venture into high water, either on foot or in a vehicle.
  • If you’re outside and hear thunder, go indoors immediately.
  • Go to a basement or an innermost, first floor room in your home if you’re told to take shelter during a tornado warning.
  • Know the location of and route to your office or building’s tornado shelter.
    Never try to outrun a tornado.
  • Have an emergency plan ready at places where your family spends time – work, school, daycare, commuting and outdoor events.
  • Emergency plans should include where to meet, and who family members should check in with, if you are separated from family members during a severe weather emergency.
