Northwest Iowa — September has been proclaimed “National Preparedness Month”, a time to prepare for weather emergencies, and other catastrophes.

Todd Heitkamp is Meteorologis-In-Charge at the National Weather Service Office in Sioux Falls, and he says September was chosen since it is the peak hurricane season.

Although we don’t live in hurricane country, Heitkamp says we need to be prepared for whatever kind of weather emergency we may encounter.
