Autumn on the High Plains means time with family, a return to school, and a crisp chill in the air as the sun sets over rippling fields. But it can also mean winds, droughts, and floods. As fall descends and winter approaches, here is a friendly reminder from NOAA that now is the time to prepare for upcoming inclement weather and hazards. Here’s what High Plains residents can do to prepare for the season:

1. Know Your Risk

  • Check weather.gov every morning before you leave home to make sure you’re prepared for what the weather might bring.

2. Take Action!

3. Be a Force of Nature

  • Inspire others to take action by showing your friends and family how you are prepared. You can tell them over the phone or in person, or tweet or post about it.
