PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer is encouraging Arizonans to prepare for severe weather hazards in anticipation of the 2012 monsoon.
She's proclaimed June 10-15 Monsoon Awareness Week. The Monsoon begins in mid-June, and extends through late September.
It's characterized by late afternoon thunderstorms that produce lightning, straight-line winds and precipitation. Given the right conditions, a monsoon storm can cause flash flooding and dust storms.
To learn more about how to plan and prepare for the monsoon, visit the Arizona Emergency Information Network.
