NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk has again been named a “StormReady” community by the National Weather Service for its communications and public safety skills in dealing with major weather events.

The city first received the designation in 2009, and the new citation will be in effect until 2015. Other Fairfield County communities to receive the designation are Westport, Ridgefield and Bridgeport.

StormReady communities use advanced planning, education and awareness to help residents before, during and after storms. Over the past two years, Norwalk has had its share of practice in dealing with major storms, and, as a result, has taken its preparation for such events seriously.

Throughout the United States, Americans deal with an average of 100,000 thunderstorms, 10,000 of which are considered severe, according to the National Weather Service, and 5,000 floods and 1,000 tornadoes.
