WEATHER UPDATE: A Tornado Watch has been issued for portions of southwest GA. This includes Stewart, Webster, Sumter, Dooly, Crisp, Pulaski, Wilcox, Dodge, and Telfair counties.
Make sure you have multiple ways to receive warnings!
A Tornado Watch is issued when severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area. IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY WILL OCCUR. It only means they ARE POSSIBLE.
Crisp County is currently under a Tornado Watch until April 5 at 7:00PM EDT by NWS Peachtree City GA. Be prepared, please take this time to review the following preparedness tips.
Before a Tornado
• Establish a family communications plan and prepare an Emergency Kit.
• Determine possible shelter options in the event that a tornado warning occurs.
• Have multiple ways to receive warnings and weather alerts. Crisp County Emergency Management uses sirens, CodeRED, local news media, and social media to alert residents of any significant weather events.
• Secure loose items around your home that could potentially become airborne.
