MINNESOTA SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS
Weather Warning Terms
The National Weather Service uses the words, "watch" and "warning" to alert you to potentially dangerous weather.
Watch - Be Alert!
A watch means weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather to occur. In other words, a "watch" means watch out for what the weather could do, and be ready to act accordingly.
Warnings - Act Now!
A warning means the weather event is imminent or occurring somewhere in the defined warning area and that people need to take shelter as soon as possible.
After 30 dedicated years at Kennedy, Mrs. Whipple begins her next chapter of life titled RETIREMENT. Her last day will be April 3rd. We wish her great times with her growing family.
We welcome Mrs. Thuet as the new secretary at Kennedy. Some of you may have met her already. Prior to her starting at Kennedy on April 4th, she was the receptionist at District Office.
