  • Description:
    During Severe Weather Preparedness week in Iowa, the National Weather Service Office in Waterloo set up an information booth at a local shopping mall. The WSO handed out NOAA brochures on severe weather, while answering various questions. Also, a questionnaire (see attachment) dealing with severe weather preparedness was handed out to 100 people who agreed to take the time to answer the questions. Many respondees personally discussed their answers with the booth attendant. The results were used to decide how much information the public in Waterloo knew about severe weather and preparedness. However, after tabulating the results, it was decided to write a report on the findings since the answers probably represent the typical knowledge of Central Region's populace as a whole.This paper presents the answers that were received to each of the questions. A few suggestions will be offered on what can be done to increase public knowledge about severe weather episodes.
