Albany -- Emergency personnel in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida are preparing for possible severe weather coming from Mississippi.

Dougherty County emergency personnel sat in on a conference and computer call held by the National Weather Service.

They discussed the possibility of that severe weather hitting Southwest Georgia. And though the system is expected to significantly die down; they are ready for it.

"9-1-1 center dispatchers are authorized to sound those alarms should the National Weather Service tell us there has been a sighting, and we need to sound those alarms. So we are in watch mode and are prepared if something happens. And its just nice that we can get together and coordinate the activities in the three states and be prepared to watch for our pulpous," said Deputy Director of EMA.

Tornado syrians have a hi-low sound, and if you hear them seek shelter and get as low to the ground as you can.
