Stay Informed of Impending Storms for Friday & Saturday

Our area is forecasted to have high winds starting this afternoon with constant flows of 25 - 30 mph with some gusts up to 70 miles per hour.

These winds can cause damage in falling trees and power lines.
The Super Cell Thunderstorms which have the potential to produce tornadoes will begin passing through our area on early Saturday morning around 7 or 8 am.

Everyone should have several ways of being notified of weather conditions. There are several apps you can install on your phone just for this event and remove them later if you need the space. Below are some of the options available.

If you have not already signed up for Code Red, please do so. Code Red will call or text your phone should a weather emergency happen in your immediate area. You can click the Code Red button on the Winston County main web page. (www.winstoncounty.org) and just go to the page and sign up for the service.

If you're on Facebook you can follow the Louisville Community Safe Room page. Chris Young will update this page to let everyone know when the Safe Room will be open, in addition to, keeping us updated on weather conditions. Also, Buddy King has a Facebook page to access for information. If you have a weather radio make sure it's up and running.

We will be paying close attention to the latest weather forecasts and will up-date through Twitter and Facebook as the conditions change.
