June is here, and that means warm weather with it. Please take the precautions to stay cool in the hot weather. Tomorrow could be 90 degrees or more, so please follow some tips below:

Tips for staying safe during extreme heat:
• Stay cool — Remain inside air-conditioned buildings as much as possible during the hottest parts of the day and avoid direct sunlight.
• Stay aware — Watch for signs of heat-related illnesses, such as weakness, dizziness, nausea, and muscle cramps. If symptoms don’t improve, seek medical attention.
• Stay hydrated — Drink plenty of water. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink!
• Stay informed — Pay attention to local weather forecasts and extreme heat alerts.

We certainly don't want to sound like a broken record, but with water levels being where they are, it is important to remain vigilant in our Flood Preparedness. With the possibility for storms, there is always a chance for localized flooding.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north-central and northeast Wisconsin.

DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms will bring locally heavy rain to the area today. Severe thunderstorms are not expected. Portions of central, east-central and northeast Wisconsin could receive one to two inches of rain and experience flooding of urban areas, small streams and basements. Locally greater rainfall totals approaching 3 inches will be possible across portions of central Wisconsin
through mid morning.

Great job City of Green Bay Community & Economic Development!

We have some good news to share regarding flooding (yeah, we just used "good news" and flooding" in the same sentence)! Due to previous and ongoing efforts by City Staff, Green Bay's premium discount for flood insurance was increased from 15% to 20% for homeowners requiring flood insurance. We know we have a long way to go and many battles ahead in our wet city, but we are happy to see some cost savings for property owners!

The DNR has issued a "Red Flag Warning" for several counties in Wisconsin because of critically dry grasses and trees and weather conditions that support a fire growing out of control if started.

Fire danger in Brown County is listed as "Very High".

Reminder: NO sirens today. Please talk with your families, friends, and coworkers about what you would do if you were warned of a tornado.

IF YOU ARE UNDER A TORNADO WARNING, FIND SAFE SHELTER RIGHT AWAY
-If you can safely get to a sturdy building, then do so immediately.
-Go to a safe room, basement, or storm cellar.
-If you are in a building with no basement, then get to a small interior room on the lowest level.
-Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls.
-Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You’re safer in a low, flat location.
-Watch out for flying debris that can cause injury or death.
-Use your arms to protect your head and neck.

Have you also checked your disaster kit? Is everything still working and not expired? Now is a better time than any to check your kit.

After deliberation, we have decided to NOT sound the sirens tomorrow. We want to encourage citizens to talk with their families and coworkers about Severe Weather Preparedness and what they would do when sirens sound during a real event, but we have decided to support our partners and encourage social distancing by NOT sounding the sirens tomorrow. There are essential businesses, facilities, etc, that still have large groups of people working, and we do not want to encourage lots of people gathering in small spaces to participate in a drill. We plan to post virtual awareness on social media during the drill. We apologize for any inconvenience we've caused you.

Please share.

[4/11/20] The spring storm continues to shape up for the region on Sunday. Rainfall will change over to snow Sunday afternoon across northern Wisconsin, bringing significant accumulating wet snow. The heaviest snowfall is currently expected to fall across far northern Wisconsin. Winds will increase overnight into Monday which will bring concerns for power lines after the snowfall, reduce visibility in areas that are still snowing, and bring the potential for lake and bay shore flooding.

Below is the probability of seeing at least 6" of snow with this system for the area:

Yes…things like emergency water pouches or certain types of foods in addition to certain medical supplies, have a recommended shelf life of 5 years or so.

Some things to check that you may have in your emergency kits:
Water

As the flooding period is coming and because prevention is a common priority, I’d like to take a moment to tell you about a leading product in this ever-growing struggle. Our uniquely designed flood barrier (Water-Gate) FM approved and entirely made in North America, can replace around 1,200 sandbags, install in minutes, without specific equipment and protect your most expensive goods and infrastructure for the next 20 years. Here is the link to our website where you can find videos and pictures of the watergate in action. http://megasecur.com/en/products/flood-protection-wl/ For any questions or information you can send me an email at [email protected] Best regards.
Will the Brown County Emergency Management consider restarting CERT?
Lauri not sure if you saw my post and I know right now you guys are swamped. However can't kewaunee County uses their code red for weather alerts. Very nice just a thought
Why didn't you alert residents on social media they'd be getting that call to thousands of them?
Did your office send out a phone message to people in Allouez? It is mostly not audible, but the phone number is understandable. Why doesn't your message identify your position with the county? All very confusing and untrustworthy.
Are you really making robocalls to people to go to your website & sign up?
