Emergency Management Offers Tips In Event of Severe Weather

Severe weather could be moving through the Four States later today and tomorrow, so it's critical you have a plan of action to take cover. Joplin Emergency Management Director Keith Stammer tells News Talk KZRG what do incase you're out and about when a storm hits.

"The rule is pretty simple and straight forward. Inside beats outside. So if you're out driving and you hear the sirens or think there may be a reason for you to seek shelter, find a building to get into. It's much better than being out in the vehicle by itself."

If you're at home, have your plan of shelter already figured out, such as finding a safe place in an interior room such as a bathroom or closet. It's always best to be on the lowest floor, and have a kit with the necessities prepared as well, including a battery operated radio and flashlight.
