WITH FALL IN THE AIR, IT’S TIME TO PREPARE
Everyone knows that fall is the perfect time for plenty of activities – apple picking, pumpkin patches and football games in the crisp, cool air. But, many Georgians underestimate the severe weather fall can bring, including strong winds, rain and even tornadoes. With the fall season upon us, take the time to prepare for severe weather the season can bring:
- Determine in advance where you and your family will take shelter in case of a tornado warning
- Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage during a thunderstorm or strong winds
- Stay abreast of current weather conditions by downloading the Ready Georgia mobile app, which provides up-to-date alerts, traffic information and more
