Water, Weather Experts Caution the Public about Storm Dangers

As people head outdoors this summer, the National Hydrologic Warning Council (NHWC wwww.hydrologicwarning.org) warns that thunderstorms can develop quickly and threaten the safety of residents and visitors who live, work, and play along streams.

Members of the NHWC will be meeting in Vail, Colo. May 18-21 to discuss forecasting severe storms, managing water resources, and mitigating floods and drought.

The eighth National Conference and Exposition of the NHWC will be the largest of its kind ever held in the United States and is attracting an international audience of emergency managers, stormwater engineers, public works departments, conservationists, urban planners, and others.

“Summer is the perfect time for a storm to develop as more moisture is carried by warmer winds and the upper level winds weaken, allowing intense storms to stay over the same area for extended periods of time,” explained Glenn Austin, executive director of NHWC.

The conference is supported by corporate sponsors as well as federal agencies, including the National Climatic Data Center; National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service; National Severe Storms Laboratory; National Weather Service; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; U.S. Bureau of Reclamation; and the U.S. Geological Survey. Numerous state and local agencies also make up a key part of the organization and conference.
