It's time to "Spring Ahead" as Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. this Sunday, March 11. When you change your clocks ahead one hour, also check the following items which may help save your life. Check your emergency kit and replenish water and items you may have used and replace food that will expire soon. Also make sure the batteries in your smoke detectors, flashlights, and NOAA Weather Radio receivers are working so they are ready for the approaching thunderstorm season. Weather radio receivers can provide life-saving warnings for tornadoes, flash floods, severe thunderstorms, and other local emergencies such as wildfires and hazardous materials incidents; especially when you are sleeping, don't have local television or radio stations on, or the electricity is off. More information is available on our NOAA Weather Radio page.
