Governor Kasich and the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA) are promoting Winter Safety Awareness Week, November 13-19

With the official first day of winter about a month and a half away, those of us in northwest Ohio may remeber that last year, thanks to El Niño, Ohio and other Midwestern states had a pretty mild winter. But this year, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center, La Nina will influence winter conditions, bringing wetter, cooler conditions to the northern United States. Forecasters say La Nina will bring more snow across Ohio and all of the GreatLakes. In preparation for winter this year, Gov. John R. Kasich and the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA) are promoting Winter Safety Awareness Week, November 13-19. During this eek, Gov. Kasich encourages household and businesses to update their safety plans, replenish theirdisaster supply kit, and prepare themselves, their vehicles and their property for winter-related incidents.
