Severe Weather Safety

JACKSON, Miss. — With severe weather a possibility for Saturday afternoon, you need to make sure you’re as prepared as you can be for a possible outbreak.

Temperatures will be in the low to mid-70’s on Saturday with a cold front moving into the state during the afternoon hours and bringing scattered, severe thunderstorms with it.

“We want to remind everyone that you can’t out run a tornado,” said Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Brett Carr. “They move a lot faster than you’d think.”

Mississippi’s second tornado season was the month of November but Carr pointed to the tornadoes that made their way through the state last year on Christmas day.

He said you need to make sure your emergency kit is prepared before any kind of weather outbreak occurs in your area.

“People need to have stored at least one gallon of water, per person, per day,” said Carr. “Sometimes it can take us three days before help gets to an area and you’re on your own.”

He said one item that many people don’t think about before a storm is medication.

“Make sure you’ve got a supply of that beforehand,” said Carr.

Lastly, with temperature quite cold at night he said a generator is always good to have on hand, or at least some means to keep warm during the winter.
