RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory has declared this week Severe Weather Week in North Carolina.

And he’s reminding state residents that with the possibility of tornadoes, flash flooding and severe thunderstorms, folks need have emergency plans in place, an emergency supply kit prepared and be mindful of weather alerts.

On Wednesday schools and government buildings across the state will practice tornado drills.

Last year in North Carolina there were nine tornados, 133 incidents of flash flooding and almost 550 severe thunderstorms with strong winds or hail.

In all, such weather events caused more than $12 million in damage.
