Monsoon Safety Awareness Week - WSFX - FOX Wilmington, NC

Monsoon Safety Awareness Week

Posted: Updated:

Arizona is just weeks away from monsoon downpours. The numbers start going into the records on June 15th each year, but the heavy rain doesn't generally arrive until early July. To get ready for the summer severe weather, this week is Monsoon Safety Awareness Week.

MonsoonSafety.org says "the goal of Monsoon Safety Awareness Week is to reduce the number of deaths, injuries and property damage caused by weather related dangers that occur during the monsoon. Through education about proper precautionary actions to be taken, lives can be saved and property losses can be minimized."

Tucson News Now's Monsoon in the Digital Age half-hour special airs this week. The special focuses on how modern technology is keeping us safer than ever before from severe weather impacts. Air dates are listed below.

    Monsoon storms are spotty with a half inch of rain falling in one location, and a mile away - nothing. Recording rainfall at one location just doesn't make sense.More >>
