LOWNDES COUNTY, Fla. (WALB) - Lowndes County Emergency services personnel are preparing for an upcoming open house to inform community members of possible severe weather that could strike this season.
The goal is to prepare Lowndes citizens for potentially rough weather in weeks to come.
Next week, people will be allowed to enter the Emergency Operation Center to hear the forecast for several named storms that could possibly impact the area.
One of the main features that went over well last year and will be repeated this year, is the prep-item table.
It's a physical display of all the items you can buy to help stay safe and comfortable when storms hit.
The open house is set to take place on Thursday, July 26 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
