Geneva, Ala. (WDHN)—One system, in particular, has the possibility of causing issues for Northwest, Florida, and the wiregrass.
It depends on whether the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico.
“It could very well affect the eastside of the gulf. That’s Florida-Alabama side which will affect us, but there’s still a chance it could
go further to the west, but right now it looks like it’s heading this way, but it’s still several days away so we do have time to prepare,” according
to Geneva County EMA Director Eric Johnson.

Geneva City School Superintendent, Ron Snell, says” he and his staff will keep an eye on the possibility of severe weather next week.”

He adds “the situation watch and see, and prepare for worst and hope for best. In many ways preparing for Covid has prepared us for
the storm. But, it couldn’t come at the worst time, our first day of school is next Monday, 24th.”
