July and August often bring monsoon weather, when large storms and flooding are possible.
Know how to stay updated. Tune into local TV or radio stations—don’t call 911 for information—or purchase a weather radio for updates from the National Weather Service. Fort Collins Utilities also provides emergency information through LETA911, FCTV, web and social media (learn more at fcgov.com/utilities).
Know the difference:
- Watch: severe weather is possible—be alert
