Weather Warning – Take Action!

A severe thunderstorm WARNING means TAKE ACTION.

Strong, damaging winds and/or large hail are occurring or will occur shortly. When a severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for your area, move inside a sturdy structure immediately and stay away from windows and doors. Acting early helps save lives!

Weather Watch – Be Prepared!

A severe thunderstorm WATCH means BE PREPARED for the potential of strong, damaging winds and/or large hail typically within the next 3-7 hours of the watch issuance.

When there is a severe thunderstorm watch, pay extra close attention to the weather and be ready to act. Preparing ahead of time helps save lives!

Hurricane Dorian – Possible Traffic

Even though the hurricane will likely have little to no effect on the WPA area, remember that there is a possibility that people in the effected area may be trying to contact family or friends relative their well-being. Consider monitoring the hurricane net frequencies of 14.325 MHz & 7.268 MHz. I have not heard any traffic so far but they may pass the messages using the ARRL Radiogram message form or the ICS 213 message form. These are the same forms we covered in the training programs at the Club meetings.
