Stay prepared for severe weather with disaster kit

(WALB) - Severe weather swept through Southwest Georgia Monday night and an EF1 tornado was confirmed in Mitchell County.

Officials encourage residents to have a plan and disaster kit in place so that you and your family know what to do in case of an emergency.

Kits should include a 72-hour supply of food, water, medicine and cash.

It is also a good idea to have flashlights, tarps and duct tape in case power goes out and your home is damaged.
