Dewitt County EMA Gives Advice for Severe Weather Season

Dewitt County Emergency Management Agency is advising residents to brace for impact as severe weather season ramps up. With warmer temperatures comes the thunderstorms and tornadoes, and Micah Gallardo with Dewitt County EMA says it's time to check those emergency supply kits and plans. He outlines the essential items needed when severe weather hits.



Although there may be sunny skies when a thunderstorm watch is issued by the National Weather Service, Gallardo warns that doesn't mean a tornado cannot develop. And, if conditions do produce a tornado watch or warning, Gallardo advises everyone in the affected area to take shelter immediately. He gives some signs that might indicate a tornado is near.



Anyone with questions about severe weather preparedness can contact the Dewitt County EMA at 935-7790 or email Gallardo at mgallardo@dewittcountyill.com.
