LEMA officials prepare for Tropical Storm Sally
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Lauderdale County officials are urging residents to prepare for tropical storm Sally.
LEMA director Odie Barrett says they are monitoring the storm’s potential to produce heavy rain and high winds across Lauderdale County. Barrett encourages residents to gather emergency supplies, including food, water, and medications, for at least three days. He also said that should also put together a first aid kit and prepare for possible power outages.
“You need to know where you are going to go. If we do end up being in an area subject to tornados, you need to know where your safe space is at. You need to have food, you need to have water, and your medications. You need to have a plan so you can get in touch with your families. This is for them to know where you are. You need to have a plan to take care of your pets,” said LEMA director Odie Barrett.
