... Severe weather awareness week in Louisiana...
       ... March 1 through March 7 2015...

The week of March 1 through March 7 has been designated as severe
weather awareness week in Louisiana. Late winter and
Spring months typically bring the highest frequency of severe
weather to Gulf Coast region. Severe weather awareness week is good
time to review severe weather safety plans and ensure you have a
means to receive timely warnings.

Last year was a relatively quiet year with regard to severe weather
across Louisiana. Only 15 tornadoes were recorded while the average
annual number of tornadoes is 37. Last years total of only 15
tornadoes was the lowest total number of tornadoes since 1994 when
only 8 were reported. The most damaging tornado in the state last
year occurred on March 10 when a strong tornado touched down in the
Monroe area and tracked nearly 9 miles resulting in nearly 4 million
dollars in damage. Fortunately there were no injuries or fatalities
associated with any of the tornadoes in Louisiana.

In southeast Louisiana... only four tornadoes were reported. The most
damaging tornado occurred on December 23 when a strong tornado
touched down east of Amite and heavily damaged several homes and
Downing numerous trees along a 6 miles path. The only injuries in
southeast Louisiana from severe weather occurred near Kentwood on
June 24 when severe thunderstorm wind gusts downed a tree onto house
injuring several occupants.

On Wednesday morning around 915am ... the National Weather Service
will issue a test Tornado Warning message on the NOAA Weather Radio
system to allow organizations to test and review their severe
weather plans and ensure their NOAA weather radios are working
properly. The test message will be clearly worded as a test. Many
NOAA Weather Radio may not sound an audio alarm... however they will
display test on their screen signifying they successfully received
the test. If severe weather or hazardous weather is expected on
Wednesday the test message will be rescheduled to a later date.
