We are approaching severe weather season, that means it time to clean out your storm shelters and prepare some supplies in case a accident was to happen. We have had several tornadoes come very close to the Elgin area, so it is very likely that one could strike again. If you have a storm shelter clean out all the dirt and debris that are inside it. Some people don’t own a storm shelter, so come up with a plan for you and your family to take shelter if a severe storm was to approach. It would also be a good idea to put some waters, food, extra pair of clothes, flashlight, and any valuable belonging close by your designated area of protection.
