Natural Disasters and Severe Weather are natural events that threaten lives, property, and other assets. They tend to occur repeatedly in the same geographical locations because they are related to weather patterns or physical characteristics of an area. Natural Disasters and Severe Weather such as flood, fire, earthquake, tornado, winter storms and windstorms affect thousands of people every year. We need to know what our risks are from natural hazards and take sensible precautions to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities. Listed below are links to information for specific hazards that could affect our state and area.
