FLOYD COUNTY EMA REMINDS LOCALS TO REMAIN PREPARED FOR SEVERE WEATHER THIS SPRING

Written by Matt Davis on April 15, 2019. Posted in News/Weather

Locals were warned to take heed of severe weather as we headed into the past weekend. It appears that the Greater Rome area weathered the storms without any damage, aside from downed limbs and a handful of power outages. The sunshine even re-appeared to conclude the weekend. 

This, however, is a time to remain vigilant when it comes to severe weather, says Tim Herrington, Director of the Floyd County Emergency Management Agency, who asserts that our area of the United States, known as Dixie Alley, is vulnerable to violent tornadoes which can result in significant damage.  He adds that the south is a critical area, due to its dense population. 

Herrington attests that, because of population density, the damage to life and property tends to be more extensive in Dixie Alley than it is in the area of the country commonly known as Tornado Alley, located around the plains and in the midwest. 

Locals may find a wealth of severe weather preparedness tools via the Floyd EMA mobile app, which is available free of charge through Apple iTunes and Google Play. 

Sunshine will cover Greater Rome to begin this work week.  Today’s forecast also calls for slightly cooler temperatures with a high in the upper 60s.
