SEVERE WEATHER EXPECTED TUESDAY EVENING INTO WEDNESDAY

PEARL – The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is asking residents to prepare for severe weather forecast to move through the state late Tuesday evening and early Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service says Mississippi can expect strong winds, severe thunderstorms and the possibility of tornadoes to develop ahead of an approaching cold front.

“This storm will move through the state while most folks are asleep, which increases the potential for injuries,” said MEMA Director Robert Latham.  “It is very important that everyone pays close attention to weather alerts during the next 24 to 48 hours. Please make sure that you have a way to receive severe weather warnings. Even using the buddy system, calling a neighbor or friend during severe weather, can save a life.”

Many weather related deaths and injuries occur after people have gone to bed. The best way to receive after hours severe weather notifications is with a NOAA weather radio with a battery backup. The weather radio sounds an audible alert when a warning is issued for an area, and may be purchased at many local retailers for about $30.

In addition to a NOAA weather radio, residents should monitor their local media for any forecast updates.

MEMA and the NWS recommend you take the following steps:

  • Have a family emergency plan.
  • Residents in mobile homes or manufactured housing should have a safe place to wait out the severe weather.
  • When riding in a vehicle never attempt to outrun a tornado.  You should abandon the vehicle and get into a nearby ditch or sturdy structure.
  • Check and restock your emergency supply kit in case you are without electricity for an extended period of time.
