Montgomery Agencies Prepare For Severe Weather
Montgomery county and city officials are preparing for the possible incoming severe weather...
The Montgomery Department of Public Safety held its severe weather briefing at the Emergency Operations Center. What agencies are most worried about is that this storm is set to hit overnight while people were sleeping, so they're saying it's best to take precautions now.
EMA Director, Calvin Brown, says that means flooding could reach low lying areas and wants residents who live there to find another place to stay on higher ground.
The Montgomery Police Department and the Montgomery Sheriff's Office will be staffed with extra patrol officers tonight and early tomorrow morning.
The Fire Department has stationed boats near flood-prone areas.
The Communications Department has extra personnel in, ready for heavy call volumes.
