Local News

GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — The Geneva County Emergency Management Agency will burn the midnight oil until the threat of severe weather is over, according to Director Misty Wise.

Wise said the county’s 14 weather sirens worked properly during testing this week.

With a weather system moving in Thursday night while most are asleep, Wise advises the public to keep an audible weather radio or some electronic device to sound off in the event of a tornado warning.

“Just be alert, and if you don’t feel like you’re going to be safe in your home during really bad weather, possibly 70 mile per hour winds, find a friend or relative that you can go and stay with tonight,” she said.

Wise is reportedly in continuous contact with the National Weather Service Office in Tallahassee for the latest climatic developments for Geneva County and the entire tri-state region.
