Ways to prepare for severe weather coming Monday

CLARKE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK)- With the severe weather threat possible coming, there are ways to be prepared and precautions to take.

Clarke County EMA Director Eddie Ivy says we could see storms develop as early as noon Monday. Ivy gives some safety tips to prepare for the coming storm; make sure EAS alerts are turned on your phones, download weather apps, and have alerts sent to your phone when a warning is issued for your location.

“A storm like this does have the potential for heavy high winds, rain, severe thunderstorm, possible tornados, and hail. What we’re doing at this point is making sure that everybody is aware of the situation. Making sure you have a flashlight and electronic devices are charged, so you can receive weather information. The basic things we always encourage everyone to do, anytime when we have a severe weather outbreak,” says Clarke County EMA Director Eddie Ivy.

Remember to stay indoors when thunder roars.
