What it means to be part of weather ready?

Being part of a Weather-Ready Nation is about preparing for your community's increasing vulnerability to extreme weather and water events. Americans live in the most severe weather-prone country on Earth. You can make sure your community is StormReady®. Some 98 percent of all presidentially declared disasters are weather related, leading to around 500 deaths per year and nearly $15 billion in damage. The StormReady program helps arm America's communities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property--before, during and after the event. StormReady helps community leaders and emergency managers strengthen local safety programs.

StormReady communities, counties, Indian tribal governments, universities and colleges, military bases, government sites, commercial enterprises and other groups are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education and awareness. No community is storm proof, but StormReady can help communities save lives. StormReady uses a grassroots approach to help communities respond to extreme weather—from tornadoes to hurricanes. StormReady helps communities respond to hazardous weather by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations. Applying is easy. To be officially StormReady, a community must:

  • Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center.
  • Have more than one way to receive sever weather warnings and forecasts and to alert the public.
  • Create a system that monitors weather conditions locally.
  • Develop a formal hazadous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises.

When damage occurs from an event such as a tornado or severe weather outbreak, information is gathered by Emergency Management from a variety of sources to determine the magnitude of damage. This includes information from local governments, county departments and agencies, public safety entities and telephone reports that are made directly to Emergency Management. This web based damage reporting page is another mechanism for the public to report damage within Moore County 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

While this page is primarily geared towards assessing damage to structures, other damage information can be submitted by responding to the appropriate questions.
