Tornado season makes an early arrival in Oklahoma
February 10, 2009

Oklahoma is even more susceptible to tornadoes than Iowa and Nebraska, but we're in the northern reaches of Tornado Alley, so today's tornado outbreak in Oklahoma City serves as a reminder that we need to be prepared for tornado season, which is just around the corner. Beyond the ordinary precautions everyone should take (and of which we'll be reminded during Severe Weather Awareness Week), professionals serving the water and wastewater industry need to keep in mind the importance of having portable pumps on hand for emergency use, as well as the value of portable lift stations and other equipment that can be used to keep essential public services like water and sewer service working effectively, even when natural disasters cut off power supplies.
