Texas County Emergency Management has recommended people “Shelter in place” during a severe weather advisory.
Shelter-in-place means public shelters are not recommended at this time, but rather each individual should prepare ahead of time by designating a safe room or place that they will seek their own private shelter in. Be prepared and discuss this plan with your family ahead of the storm.
On the advice of the Hardesty Fire Department, the Hardesty city council has determined that the Fire Department storm shelter will be closed, unless a significant threat is imminent.
In the event of an extreme incoming storm, the siren will be sounded and the Fire Department storm shelter will be opened at that time. Masks are strongly recommended.
Again, the storm shelter will not be opened unless the siren has been sounded.
