Newsworthy Notes

If you've been watching the news the past few days, here are a few examples of why it pays to be prepared:

Officials are considering evacuating the ENTIRE TOWN of Fargo, ND due to flooding and an expected crest of over 41 feet, which hasn't been recorded since 1897. And if residents there are expecting help in their evacuations, here's what the officials are saying, from Fox News:

"Police Chief Keith Ternes urged people with disabilities to consider leaving the city, saying: "If they expect us to get to them and get them out, they should give serious consideration."

Another reason why we say that you have to be ready to "self-rescue".

On a note closer to home:

Dozens of homes and businesses destroyed by tornado in Mississippi

Those of us in West Tennessee, Eastern Arkansas and North Mississippi know that we are entering our spring severe weather season. We've had very warm temperatures this week, with heavy storms in the evenings and more is projected for the remainder of the week. Take some time to make sure you have your storm safe room ready!
