When you hear a weather siren you know itâ€™s time to pay attention and prepare to take cover. But out in some parts of Clay County residents donâ€™t always hear the cityâ€™s weather sirens, and when natural disasters hit close to their homes they only have a few minutes to retreat to safety.
Thatâ€™s why for five long years Clay County Emergency Management officials have been trying diligently to provide county residents with weather sirens that will warn people when a tornado, thunderstorm or other weather-related disaster is headed their way.
Just like many people, Clay County School Superintendent Mae Brewer was sitting at home this weekend watching the news on television when all of a sudden the news anchor started talking about a proposal to abolish the Clay County School District.
