Are You Prepared for Severe Weather
It’s that time of year again for central Mississippi. Knowing what to do before, during and after severe weather can save your life.
REMEMBER…A tornado watch means that tornadoes are possible. A tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted and/or indicated by weather radar.
Before: Locate your gas, power and water cutoffs for your home and be familiar with how to operate them. Have your cell phone charged in case of loss of power. See our Severe Weather Emergency Kit.
During: Get to your designated safe area in your home. Do not drain your cell phone in case you need it to make an emergency 911 call for help.
After: Beware of downed power lines and check for any natural gas leaks. Look to our utility contacts link to notify the appropriate provider. Restock emergency supplies.
For more information, see FEMA’s guidelines for tornado preparation.
