BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Wednesday, April 7th, the National Weather Service is asking you to take a picture or selfie and post it to social media to help raise awareness. It is the #SafePlaceSelfie campaign to help plan where to stay safe from hazardous and severe weather.

During this annual spring severe weather safety campaign, the Weather Service wants everyone to think about where they plan to stay safe from hazardous weather by taking pictures of themselves, family, or organization in their safe place. Then post the picture on social media at 11:11am, using the hashtag #SafePlaceSelfie (posting at other times is ok too).

While the focus is on tornadoes and severe weather events, the campaign goes beyond to include other hazards like wildfires, flooding, and lightning.
