Severe Weather Preparedness Week is This Week Throughout Indiana

Clinton County Central Dispatch Director Renee Crick has released the following letter regarding Severe Weather Preparedness Week.

The week of March 12-18 is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in the state of Indiana.

On Tuesday, March 14, at approximately 10:15 a.m., the National Weather Service will issue a test tornado warning alert, which will be shared through most notifications system. We will participate in the statewide test by conducting a full activation of the tornado weather sirens in Clinton County.

It is a good time to talk with your family about what to do in the event of severe weather. A Tornado Watch means conditions are possible. It does not mean that they will occur. A Tornado Warning is issued when a tornado is imminent. When a tornado warning is issued, seek safe shelter immediately.

Remember that tornado sirens do not provide coverage for all areas. They are also meant to be heard outside and cannot be relied on if you are indoors. We highly recommend having a NOAA weather radio. Man people silence their phones at night but the weather radio will sound when a warning is issued.

We would like to remind everyone that will still offer a free service utilizing Nixle. We send out mass notifications regarding events happening in Clinton County such as severe weather, road closures die to construction or accidents, etc. We encourage people to download the free app called Everbridge where you will receive all of our Nixle notifications via the Everbridge application.
