Severe Storms Expected to Bring Multiple Hazards This Week

As two storm systems develop on Tuesday and Wednesday, they will bring multiple hazards this week across the United States. The first storm will bring blizzard conditions from the Plains to the Great Lakes on Tuesday night and into Wednesday. The second storm will bring snow, heavy rain, strong winds and the risk of severe weather from the Gulf Coast to the Ohio Valley through Thursday. Meanwhile, temperatures remain above average for the eastern half of the U.S., with more cold and snow in store for the West.

Impact on Alaska

In Alaska, the storms have already had a devastating impact on the homeless population. Last week, a homeless man died of hypothermia in Anchorage, highlighting the flaws in the system that are failing to provide adequate shelter and resources for those in need. The death has caused many to question why more isn’t being done to protect the homeless population in Alaska.

Tips for Staying Safe

Given the extreme weather conditions, it’s important to take the necessary precautions to stay safe. Be sure to check the forecast regularly and stay updated on any severe weather warnings. If you’re traveling, make sure to check road conditions before heading out. It’s also a good idea to keep an emergency kit in your car in case you get stranded. Finally, if you come across someone in need, don’t hesitate to offer help.
