Severe Weather Awareness Week-Thursday

Written by  Thursday, 06 February 2014 09:15

  The purpose of the week is to give people in Bulloch County and the entire state an opportunity to learn what to do if severe  weather threatens. 


  Each day this week focuses on different aspects of being prepared in case of severe weather.


  Today is Lightning Safety Day.  Ted Wynn, Director of Bulloch County Safety/Emergency Management Agency, said that on average 53 people die each year from lightning strikes, and hundreds more are injured.  More information on lightning safety will be posted on the agency’s Facebook page.


  The weather did cause a postponement of the annual Statewide Tornado Drill which was scheduled for yesterday.   The postponement was due to  the threat of severe weather in parts of Georgia.  It has been rescheduled for Friday, February 7 at 9 a.m.  All Schools in the county will practice their procedures for a tornado.


  The week’s activities will conclude Friday with Flood Safety Day.


  Wynn said “The little things you do to prepare on the front end for severe weather can make a big difference in how quickly you recover and get back to normal, after severe weather strikes.”
