What are Watches?

Watches may be issued hours before a storm. The sky may be sunny when you first hear a tornado or severe thunderstorm watch. Remember, a watch just means that conditions are favorable for severe but do not ignore severe thunderstorm warnings!

What are Warnings?

 Severe thunderstorm warnings often precede tornado warnings, providing you with extra time to prepare for a dangerous storm. If there's a severe thunderstorm headed your way, you should monitor it closely, especially if a tornado watch is also in effect in thunderstorms and/or tornadoes.

When A Tornado Warning Is Issued

Tornado warnings contain information that lists the cities and towns in the path of a tornado. While your National Weather Service strives to provide the most detailed and accurate information possible, there may be occasions when your small town or community is in the path of a dangerous storm, but is not listed in the warning text. This also holds true for television path forecasts. You should be cautious when using detailed forecasts of time and location. Because of the way radar works and how storms behave, these times and locations could be off by several minutes and several miles. Allow yourself plenty of time to get to your tornado shelter.

•Move quickly! Don't waste valuable time by trying to see the tornado. If you wait until you can see or hear it coming, it may be too late.

•Be sure you're dressed, and don't forget to wear sturdy shoes!

•Take your cell phone, car keys and identification with you.

•GET IN, GET DOWN, AND COVER UP!

 This is EXTREMELY important. If you are outside, get inside. Get underground if possible. If you're already in a sturdy building, go the lowest floor in the middle of the building. Put as many walls between you and the outside as possible. Flying and falling debris are a storm's number one killer. Use pillows, blankets, cushions, coats, helmets, etc.  to cover up and protect your head and body from flying debris.

 •DO NOT seek shelter under a highway overpass. They are not safe!

•DO NOT open doors or windows. This does not help!

•DO NOT go outside to find the tornado, even if you think it's far away!

NOTICES

Bay Restoration Fund Facts From the Office of Comptroller Peter Franchot - In the 2004 legislative session, the Maryland State Government took a major step to protect our waterways through the enactment of the Bay Restoration Fund (Senate Bill-320).  The purpose of the bill was to create a dedicated fund to improve the environment and water quality of the Chesapeake Bay.  Through an environmental surcharge fee, this fund is used to upgrade wastewater treatment plants, upgrade septic systems in the critical area, and implement cover crops on agricultural land. The Town of Denton has initiated a BRF hardship exemption policy.  CLICK HERE to get all details concerning this policy as well as an application to apply.

Are you interested in curbside recycling? - We are seeking input from residents.  Many items present in household waste are recyclable.  The Town of Denton is conducting a survey to determine the potential interest of Town residents in developing a curbside recycling program.  If interested, would you be willing to pay a fee for this service?  Click here to send an email response.
