Public Information Statement

Statement as of 11:04 AM EST on January 22, 2017

Expires 11:15 PM EST on January 22, 2017


... High risk of long lived and destructive tornadoes today...

North Florida and southeast Georgia residents,

The severe weather event we are about to go through has the potential
to be one of the most severe weather outbreaks since the 1993
super storm and possibly like the big tornado outbreak near the
University of Alabama a few years ago. A Tornado Watch called a
particularly dangerous situation (pds) is likely to be issued for
our area later today. Unfortunately reports are that 11 people
have already died in southern Georgia overnight. You need to take
this situation extremely seriously, like you would a potential
hurricane. Some things you need to know

1. Have a means to be alerted to severe weather, multiple means are
better. Most major phone carriers carry the wireless emergency
alert (wea) and it automatically GOES to your phone, but if you
have turned it off please turn it back on today. The fema app will
also alert you and it is free. The Red Cross also has a tornado
app with a great deal of useful information.
2. Keep your phones charged at all times today.
3. If you have a NOAA Weather Radio make sure it has fresh
batteries and if it is stored this is the time to break it out.
4. Monitor the broadcast media and the NWS Jacksonville webpage,
facebook and twitter.
5. When a warning is issued, many people want to confirm the
information. Unfortunately today the storms will be moving so fast
that before you have the time to confirm the threat the tornado
could be on you. Please if a warning is issued resist the urge to
confirm the information and take shelter immediately, it could
save your or a family members life!
6. Have something to cover your head, motorcycle or bike helmet.
7. Find a safe room, preferably an interior room with minimum
glass in the room. Generally bathrooms are safest but avoid rooms
with large mirrors.
8. Please do not try to outrun a tornado in a vehicle, they will
be moving fast and on winding country roads you are likely to lose
The Race. Find a safe shelter in a sturdy building as quickly as
possible.
9. Mobile and prefabricated homes are not safe in severe
weather, especially older ones.

Hopefully, we can escape this situation without anyone being injured
or significant damage, no one would be happier than the employees
of the National Weather Service, but we need to you take
precautions should the worst happen today.
