Lowndes prepares for Dennis

July 8, 2005

Valdosta - Public works crews in Lowndes County are getting ready for whatever storm damage Hurricane Dennis could bring our way.

Workers spent the day filling up sand bags and making sure all they're equipment is gassed up and ready.

County leaders say they learned a lot from last years storms, and they'll be better prepared this time. "We've had several meetings with all of our staff throughout the year to discuss what we could do better and what adjustments need to be made this time, and basically, we're ready," said Paige Dukes.

Emergency management officials will meet Saturday morning to discuss Dennis's path and decide what else needs to be done to prepare for the storm.
