May 30, 2015 by Guest Writer

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has updated its Extreme Weather Information Sheets (NEWIS), which provide phone numbers and web sites for contacting government officials and monitoring information resources before, during, and after potentially life-threatening weather situations.

Sheets are available free of charge for coastal areas, including Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, as well as Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Find them at www.ncddc.noaa.gov and search for NEWIS.
