After a winter filled with record-breaking freezing temperatures and almost unbelievable snowfall totals, everyone is asking the question ... where is spring?
With April around the corner, weather patterns are changing and concerns shift to severe weather occurrences such as tornados and hurricanes. According to Jill Hasling, a Certified Consulting Meteorologist with the Weather Research Center in Houston, homeowners nationwide need to keep their guard up.
"Each year on average a 109 people are killed and over 27 million dollars of damage is caused by tornadoes in the United States," says Hasling. "The months with the highest number of reported tornadoes are April, May and June. However, tornadoes can occur in any month of the year."
