“No one can fully anticipate a severe weather event, and millions of Americans are impacted by them each year,” said McBath. “That’s why it’s so important that Georgia’s families are prepared. I’m proud to partner with The Weather Channel for another year to encourage all to create an emergency plan, practice that plan, and always remain vigilant to developing weather conditions.”

Weather preparedness and severe weather coverage has never been more important as billion dollar storms are on the rise. For 10 years in a row, Harris Poll has ranked The Weather Channel as the “TV News Brand of the Year.” In 2018, an Ipsos poll ranked the network the most trusted name in news media and in 2019, a Morning Consult poll named The Weather Channel as one of the most trusted brands in America. Last year, Rep. McBath recognized The Weather Channel for its 40 years of service to American families.
