Be Smart When It Storms

As part of its recent social science studies related to the public’s use of National Weather Service flood forecast products, Nurture Nature Center has produced a series of new outreach and educational materials.  These flyers, cards and table-top banners, which will be used by NWS offices and NNC for outreach, provide ways for people to “Be Weather Alert” and to “Be Smart When It Storms.”  The materials describe the sorts of impacts people can expect from severe storms and flooding, and also provide instruction on using flood forecasts and warnings to keep households safe.  The materials are available at NNC’s social science research website, socialscience.focusonfloods.org.
