Severe Weather Warning - Your Guide To Storm Shelters

At Valley Storm Shelters, we clearly provide some of the best storm shelters on the market. No matter the situation, no matter the extent of the weather, we have products specifically made to keep you safe.

First though, let’s answer the question, “What is a severe weather warning?”

Severe Weather Warning - What Does That Mean?

According to the National Weather Service, there is a difference between severe weather “watches” vs “warnings.” When local authorities are issuing a severe weather watch, this means that severe weather like thunderstorms or tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area. The watch area can be very large, covering numerous counties and sometimes even multiple states. 

When a watch is issued in your area, our advice is to stay informed and be prepared to take action. It doesn’t mean that anything detrimental is happening, but it does mean that weather conditions favor thunderstorms or hurricanes or tornadoes. The weather could ramp up and produce large hail or extremely damaging wind.

Alternatively, when a severe weather warning is issued, this means it is time to take action. It means that intense weather has been reported and indicated by weather radar. Typically warnings can indicate imminent danger to your life or your property. Though a warning can sound scary, if you have a Valley Storm Shelter, you have nothing to worry about. When a warning is issued, this is the time to take shelter in a substantial building or your storm shelter. Get out of mobile homes or campers that can blow over in high winds. Warnings usually encompass a much smaller area than a watch might, sometimes just a small county or the size of a city.
