NWS certifies FOX28 as Michiana's only StormReady station

Posted:

It goes without saying that Michiana gets its share of severe weather, from tornadoes to blizzards to severe thunderstorms.

When extreme weather strikes, threatening you, your loved ones and your property, it's important you get the information you need quickly and accurately from someone you can trust.

We here at FOX28 have worked diligently over the years to earn that trust, and are proud to say we have just been approved by the National Weather Service as Michiana's only StormReady station.

StormReady is a national community preparedness program to help communities develop plans to handle all types of severe weather.  The program encourages communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations.

Television stations have special requirements to receive the certification, but you can be StormReady, too.  To find out how follow this link to the National Weather Service StormReady page.
