NWS Fall Safety

Know your risk, take action, and be a force of nature! Our Fall Weather Safety presentation features tips for dealing with fall hazards: drought, floods, fog, hurricanes, tsunamis, wind, wildfire, and winter weather. This fall, get informed and be ready, responsive, and resilient to the hazards of extreme weather.


CoCoRaHS – The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network is a network of volunteer observers who measure precipitation from their backyard. Any age can volunteer. CoCoRaHS sells low cost equipment to help volunteers get started. Observers enter their observations online. You can check out the Daily Precipitation Report from the GCPL station by entering OH-GG-16.
