 “Severe Weather Warnings” (link to online video)– A 20 minute program that discusses storm safety before and AFTER. The AFTER segments are scattered throughout the program but the big parts can be found at 4 minutes and 6 seconds and 14 minutes and 30 seconds on the ENGLISH program. The Spanish program, which you can get to by clicking “Spanish” in the right toolbar may be timed slightly different, but it’s captioned in English so you should be able to find it quickly. For your reference, I have also attached the SCRIPT in English and Spanish – note that it is only available for half of the show because the second half is not scripted because it’s a conversation based off of questions and answers. The numbering on the scripts align so you can use the English as your guide. English Script Spanish Script
