(UNDATED) - Heavy rains that began yesterday are expected to continue throughout the day and into tomorrow. The threat of severe storms and flooding is forecasted overnight for locations statewide.

Many severe storms occur overnight during normal sleeping hours. As such, it is important to take precautions in advance of severe weather, in the event that immediate action is needed.

* Charge all electronic devices fully before going to bed.

* If devices such as phones and laptops are charging overnight, be sure they are plugged into a surge protector.

* Consider turning up the volume on cell phone notifications. Many smartphones receive alerts for severe weather. Be familiar with the notification settings of weather apps.


Have an all-hazards weather radio near the bed or sleeping area. Keep the weather radio turned on with a volume loud enough that alerts can be heard while sleeping. Overnight alerts could provide important details about severe weather, with safety precautions to follow.
