Severe Weather Awareness Week

The biggest weather threats in southern West Virginia are flooding, severe thunderstorms, and direct line winds depending on the storm system.
Kevin Walker who is the Director of Emergency Management says families should be prepared all year round, but you should take this week to review plans and make sure you have the correct amount of
supplies.
“The National Preparedness is 72 hours for any kind of event. Families need to make sure they have enough items whether it be food, water, or whatever it is to sustain their self for the first 72 hours,” said Kevin.
If you need guidance on a family plan you can pick up a Family Emergency Guidebook from the Fayette County Emergency Services.
