In the summer of 2012, I learned a weather term I'd never heard of before. On June 29th that year a howling storm called a 'derecho' swept through South Jersey. It was the kind of storm that had me in bed with a pillow over my head waiting for it to pass.
Summer is finally in full swing this June, and with that hot weather comes the important reminder that this month is Heat Safety Awareness Month. Dehydration can have numerous effects on the body, such as drowsiness, vomiting, headache, and loss of consciousness.
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for the entire state as a storm system digs through New Jersey late Sunday and some powerful and potentially dangerous thunderstorms are expected to develop.
