“Severe weather can occur year-round in South Carolina and can often lead to the loss of life and millions of dollars in damage to property,” according to an announcement from the Governor’s Office. “Recent storms have shown that a well-informed public educated in necessary preparedness measures is less likely to suffer personal injury, loss of life and property damage in the wake of severe weather.”
Haley encourages all South Carolinians to participate in a statewide tornado drill today, and to work together to help raise awareness of severe weather safety by taking advantage of available preparedness and educational programs available at the South Carolina Emergency Management Division website, www.scemd.org/planandprepare.
