Stormy weather
Placeholder Image

We don't know about you, but it seems to us that the storms that have been rolling through here the in the last year have been not only spectacular but violent.

Tuesday night's storm was particularly violent; if you were up, it was actually pretty scary.

We have been fortunate here in Newton County so far in that no one has been seriously injured in these recent storms. We want you to take care of yourself, too, so our injury-free streak can continue.

We urge and advise you to listen to weather warnings and heed them, too. Work with your family to determine a safe place in your house, purchase a battery-powered weather radio, and place a flashlight where you can easily get to it.
torms can kill, so don't put yourself in a position that this might happen to you or your family.
It's best to be safe and prepared.
