Bismarck, ND - Governor Jack Dalrymple has proclaimed April 28 - May 2 Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week. Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week encourages the public, businesses, schools, and government agencies to focus on being prepared and being informed about severe summer weather.

Severe summer storms can cause damaging winds, hail, rural fires, flash flooding, and power outages. A well-informed and prepared public can better cope with and survive life threatening severe summer storms.

In addition, there will be a TEST conducted around 11:15 AM CDT (10:15 AM MDT) on Wednesday, April 30, to test communication systems. A tornado drill will be conducted. Participation is fully voluntary and is up to local/county/school officials to decide whether or not they participate in the drill and exercise their disaster mitigation plans and procedures. For information about this test, please contact your local county emergency manager. A clickable map is located here: www.nd.gov/des/emergency/.
