(UNDATED) - This week (March 16-22) is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.

This is the 40th anniversary of the April 1974 Super Outbreak, which is still the largest outbreak of tornadoes in the country's history.

Some tips to keep you safer include keeping trees trimmed, making a disaster kit with essentials, have basements waterproofed and contact your insurance company to see if you're in a flood plain. State officials also say to have a weather radio to alert you to when severe weather is approaching.

Other tips can be found at in.gov/dhs.
