Homeowners urged to be better prepared in case there's a next time
One of the lingering thoughts from the emergency situation after the storms June 29th, seems to be how to better prepare for emergencies. The director of emergency management in Kanawha County told the Daily Mail that people need to be prepared to take care of themselves for 72 hours, because emergency personnel need that time to get their resources in place. Things to stock up include water, non perishable food, and batteries for flashlights, and that kind of emergency kit should stay readily available at home. Everyone hopes there won't be a next time, but emergency officials want us to prepare just in case.
