Important Pet Information
Due to a lack of emergency care available at the post veterinarian facility, consider getting your pets wellness checks done at a local vet clinic, off-post just in case they need to be seen for after hours for emergency care. Your pet must be a registered patient at the local vet clinic if they have an emergency.

Missouri Weather- What you need to know

Missouri generally has a humid continental climate, with cool to cold winters and long, hot summers. In the southern part of the state, the climate borders on a humid subtropical climate. Due to its location in the interior United States, Missouri often experiences extremes in temperatures.

"Tornado season" generally is in the spring when tornadoes are more prevalent from April through July, with May and June being the peak months. But like thunderstorms, tornadoes can form any time of the year.

Fort Leonard Wood has taken many precautions to ensure the safety of those who live and work on post. Get to know the “Giant Voice” siren system which is tested regularly.
