JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri is launching a new website to help residents be better prepared for severe weather.

Missouri Stormaware includes videos on how to take shelter in different types of buildings, information on tornado sirens and weather alert radios, and links to services that can send text messages alerting Missouri residents to approaching severe weather.

Officials with the State Emergency Management Agency said the text-messaging service is free, though normal text messaging rates apply.
