There are lots of ways Sunflower County residents can stay informed about the weather, as a probable winter weather even heads our way.
There are a number of weather apps, there’s the National Weather Service, and there’s also a local option that local leaders are hoping residents will take advantage of.
The E-T spoke with Sunflower County Emergency Management Director Denny Evans today about the potential incoming storm, and he is encouraging all to sign up for the county’s Hyper-Reach System.
This will serve residents in the future as well during emergencies like tornadoes or flooding.
“Stay informed,” Evans said. “Plan now in case the power goes out for several days. Fuel up your cars.”
Evans said the EMA will send out information over the Hyper-Reach System. They can follow the link below or text “alerts’ to 662-445-4112.
Residents will need to enter their address and sign up for both weather alerts and community alerts.
