Ahead of the Storm: 13abc to highlight the power of severe weather

(WTVG) - Severe weather season is officially here and 13abc wants to get you prepared. On Thursday, April 11th at 7pm, 13abc will air a half hour special dedicated to giving you all the information you need before severe weather hits.

During the special, we will offer tips to keeping you and your family safe, as well as stories about protecting your home from the damaging storms.

Plus, join us as we look back on some of the biggest stories from an area full of severe weather history. We'll discuss some of the biggest tornadoes of Ohio's past, including the story of a high school marching band who stared a massive tornado in the face more than 35 years ago. A photo from the event made the cover of TIME Magazine.

And, of course, we'll offer the long awaited look at your late Spring and Summer forecast.
