SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK CONTINUES WITH A FOCUS ON TORNADO SAFETY

Written by Matt Davis on February 7, 2018. Posted in News/Weather

The observation of Severe Weather Awareness Week in Georgia continues today with a focus on Tornado Safety.

Tornadoes are reported throughout the year, but they are most likely to occur from March to May with the peak in April, according to the National Weather Service.  The entire state of Georgia is vulnerable to tornadoes.

Tim Herrington, the Director of the Floyd County Emergency Management Agency, urges local residents to prepare in advance for tornadoes and other types of weather-related threats to our area by compiling an emergency kit and updating your family’s emergency preparedness plan.  And when making weather-related emergency preparedness plans, make sure to take your pets into consideration!

The Floyd EMA teams with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service once again this year for the observation of Severe Weather Awareness Week.  For additional information, call the Floyd EMA at (706) 236-5002 or visit www.ready.ga.gov.

Note:  the statewide tornado drill that was scheduled for this morning has been postponed until Friday at 9 am, according to the NWS.
