storm debris thrown all over the street SERVPRO of Marietta West is here to help when storm damage happens. We can make storm damage "Like it never even happened."

Unfortunately, severe weather is a fact of life. While there is no way to prevent severe storms from impacting you, getting ready for them is a fantastic way to mitigate the damage they can cause to your family and your home. Understanding how to prepare and react to severe weather is one of the best things you can do to keep your family safe.

Severe storms can have a major impact on those in their path, both emotionally and financially, and should always be regarded with caution. Take our quiz below to see where you rank in terms of severe weather readiness and learn how you can be more prepared.

What Is Your Severe Weather Readiness Rank?

| Do you know the difference between watches and warnings? | Staying informed is one of the best ways to stay safe, so it is a must that you understand the information that local officials distribute. Knowing the difference between a severe thunderstorm watch and warning can help you take the appropriate actions to prepare.

| Do you have a weather radio? | Having a reliable way to receive information is a must, especially in the event of a power outage or cell phone network failure. An NOAA weather radio, either hand-powered or battery-powered, can help you stay looped in to all important updates.

| Do you have an emergency kit? | Power outages are extremely common during severe storm events, so having an emergency kit that is stocked with flashlights, batteries, and nonperishable food and water is a must to keep everyone comfortable until the lights come back on.

| Do you have a designated safe area in your home? | Being sure that everyone knows where to go in the event of a storm is a must. Make sure you have picked out the safest area of your home to designate for this. A basement is best, but if your home does not have one, choose a bathroom or other area in the interior of the home that has no windows.
