On Tuesday, May 22nd, Meteorologists from NWS Grand Rapids designated Ludington State Park and Silver Lake State Park as StormReady State Parks in individual ceremonies at each of the parks.
StormReady is a program in which NWS officials work with different types of communities (including cities, counties, universities, State Parks, etc...) in making sure that procedures during hazardous weather situations will help to protect the citizens of the communities. A communty is designated as StormReady once the NWS evaluates an application that is submitted by a community, and confirms the procedures on the application meet the standards set forth by the NWS for the size of the community.
