Are you prepared for severe weather?

With the potential of severe weather this weekend, emergency management officials are urging you to have a plan.

Three tornadoes touched down in South Georgia Sunday.

Monday will mark the fourth anniversary of the largest outbreak of tornadoes in the country's history. The deadliest twister hit Tuscaloosa, Alabama on April 27th, killing 64 people. 

Experts say designate a safe room in your home for your family. And know the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning. If a warning has been issued for your area seek shelter.

"As soon as you hear a warning go off, go inside, turn on your local media to determine what's going on and get in that safe room," said Jim Vaught, the Albany-Dougherty EMS/911 Deputy Director.
