National Weather Service Launches New Readiness Initiative

The National Weather Service says that 2011 is likely to be remembered as one of the most deadly years in weather history. National director Jack Hayes says that's why the organization is launching an initiative called "Weather Ready Nation." He says for starters, the initiative is about improving community preparedness.

In addition to deploying new technology, Hayes says they'll work to improve forecasting precision. The agency also plans to examine the terminology used to describe weather events, with the idea of improving communications with local authorities and the public.
