This week is severe weather awareness week in Minnesota. Since 2000, disasters have claimed the lives of 21 Minnesotans and caused more than 373 million dollars in damages. Remember watches mean conditions are favorable for the development of the severe weather, and warnings mean the hazard is occurring or likely to occur. In addition to tv and radio notifications, there is now a system that notifies people via a smart phone in a text-like message. North Dakota's severe weather awareness week is April-29th through May 3rd.
