Know your County, nearby cities, and local landmarks whether at home or
on the Road. Listen to weather radio or local media for updated weather
information.

A warning means a severe thunderstorm or tornado has been observed or is
indicated by Doppler weather radar. If a warning is issued for your

Heavy rain... heavy rain may produce flash flooding quickly. Avoid low lying
