COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – It has been an active year for severe weather across the Chattahoochee Valley.

We have seen 38 tornadoes directly impacting our area through early May.

In a Storm Team 9 Special Report: Severe Weather and your Safety, we look back at the year so far. Was it normal? Is our risk for severe weather over? We also look ahead to what comes next as we prepare for summer and for the Atlantic hurricane season.

We have tips on how to keep you and your family safe when severe thunderstorms and tornadoes strike, and a look at the tools you need to have on hand to stay ahead of the storm.

You'll also see a sneak peek at the newest addition to the WTVM fleet of vehicles, designed to take you into the storm and report conditions live during severe weather.
