Officials with Tennessee Emergency Management held a press conference on Severe Weather Week, which begins Monday.

The group of men and women talked about the importance of being ready when bad weather arrives.

A new part of that was a plan to put public emergency information on digital billboards across the state starting Sunday.

The National Weather Service will host a Severe Weather Awareness Day at Trevecca University Saturday. To view the full schedule of Severe Weather Week, click here.
