VIDEO: UK Professor Offers Tornado Tips

Published: Mar 13, 2013

 

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 13, 2013) ― The arrival of spring means flowers, warmer weather and sunshine, but it can also mean an increased threat of severe weather hitting the Bluegrass state.

 

Roberta Dwyer, a professor at the Gluck Equine Research Center in the UK College of Agriculture, says the threat for Kentucky farmers is especially significant because of the rural areas in which they live and work. 

 

When tornadoes hit parts of Kentucky last March, Dwyer quickly realized there was no comprehensive set of instructions for farmers dealing with destruction.  So she and her Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service colleagues worked to create a document to help farmers clean up their pastures and protect their animals in the days after the disaster.

 

Watch the video above for advice on how farmers can start preparing for severe weather and why it's important for all Kentuckians to be on guard every season of the year.
