The lights keep going out. I keep hearing sirens from area lightning strikes. And, last night... Well, let's just say I've spent my fair share of time in the closet with a flashlight and a board game. Of course, as every storm goes, the Red Cross was busy. The phone calls started rolling in around the time the thunderstorms did. Keep a look out for us today to keep responding until the storms stop.
As of today, we still feel like we are stuck somewhere in the movie Twister (although the winds have somewhat subsided). So, check out our link here on thunderstorm preparedness and take cover.
Also, keep in mind tomorrow, June 12, is the last day for broadcasting in analog. The transition will greatly impact your disaster preparedness plans if your television is not capable to receive a digital signal. Click here to read more.
Now for a weather update: We had severe weather last night and today. It’s expected to continue through Saturday. So people need to make sure they can receive weather updates. We can suggest purchasing a battery operated radio.
