LOCAL FEMA STORM SHELTERS

FEMA  storm shelters are located at the following schools in Newton County.  Storm shelters will be opened at the time a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning is issued by the National Weather Service.  Please consider that you may not have time to reach a shelter so it is important to have a plan to shelter in place.  We encourage all families to have a weather radio and emergency plans in place for any weather event whether you are home, your workplace, church, or are traveling.
 
Information to assist with emergency planning can be found at: 
www.ready.gov/tornadoes or www.nws.noaa.gov.
