As winter fades into spring, the possibility of severe weather increases. But should severe weather happen, local officials say the community is ready.
Last week was Severe Weather Preparedness Week, and local schools and businesses participated in statewide drills to ensure their plans are in place.

Last year, the release states, there were more than 450 weather-related fatalities and nearly 2,600 injuries nationwide.
