Government Information presents its latest featured resource, NOAA's Weather Ready Nation.

The focus of NOAA's Weather-Ready Nation website is to build community "resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather and water events." On the site, visitors can make their way through sections that include Events, Resources, Be a Force of Nature, and Are you Weather-Ready? This last area is a great public resource for those looking to get ready for extreme weather, including heat waves, floods, and tsunamis. A good way to get a flavor of the site's general offerings is via its news feed and social media postings, all of which are available from the homepage. Finally, the Resources area contains links to helpful webtools, apps, and fact sheets.
