Weather Ready Nation

Arizona Weather Hazards

Lightning           Thunderstorms
Dust storms       Heat
Flash floods       Wildfires

As a Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) Ambassador, Mesa Community College has committed to work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a means to build resiliency in communities. Are you Weather Ready?

Sitting at the northern border of the Sonoran Desert, Maricopa County is susceptible to deadly dust storms. A wall of dust can engulf motorists without any warning.

When you can't see 300 feet in front of you, pull off the road immediately. Turn off your lights and take your foot off the break.

Everyone should be Weather Ready. As all young meteorologists know, Let's Prepare and Survive!
