REPORTING: RABBIT ZIELKE
This is Tennessee’s Severe Weather Awareness Week. Because of the loss of life caused by tornadoes in 1974 the National Weather Service targeted times to focus on outreach and education to help the general population be aware of the danger of severe weather. Typically the most dangerous weather systems we experience here in Chattanooga involve flash flood and flooding but tornadoes are possible in the area and any storm carries the threat of lightning. You can contact Tim Troutman at the Morristown office of the National Weather Service by calling (423) 586-8706.
