At the request of the respective states, FEMA has liaison officers in place in Massachusetts and Vermont, and a liaison officer has been in contact with New Hampshire emergency management officials. These officials are working with state officials and are in place to help coordinate federal support, if needed.
Through our regional office in Boston, we're closely monitoring the severe weather and tornado watches and warnings as they continue throughout the Northeast. We are in close contact and coordination with our state partners and stand ready to support as they respond to the severe weather, as needed.
Here are some tips to remain safe:
- A tornado watch means a tornado is possible in your area.
- A tornado warning is when a tornado is actually occurring, take shelter immediately.
- Listen to local and state officials for emergency information and instructions, and follow local news reports for the latest updates in your area.

We will continue to update the blog as necessary, so check back for our latest updates on severe weather and tornadoes.
