Dear Precious Missionaries in the Georgia Atlanta Mission:
Later today and tomorrow, a storm that struck Arkansas hard last night will bring rain and strong winds, potentially severe weather across the State of Georgia.  It is hard to know if it will be hard rain and wind, or something more severe that will create damage, but beware.
We just wanted you to be aware.  We are not saying stay in and don't move about with your normal day at this point, it may be just a rainy and windy day, but be aware and alert if things advance.  Here are some preparations to consider:
What to do during a windstorm
1. Don’t panic. Take quick action to protect yourself and help others.
2.Turn off the stove if you’re cooking when the power goes out, and turn off natural gas appliances.
3. If you are indoors, move away from windows or objects that could fall. Go to lower floors in multi-story homes. If you are outdoors, move into a building. Avoid downed electric power lines, utility poles and trees.
4. If you are driving, pull off the road and stop away from trees. If possible, walk into a
safe building. Avoid overpasses, power
lines and other hazards.
 5. Listen to instructions from you mission president and leaders regarding emergency
What to do after a windstorm
 Check yourself and those around you for injuries. Evacuate damaged buildings. Do not
 re-enter until declared safe by authorities. Call 9-1-1 only to report a life threatening
emergency. If you smell gas or hear a hissing sound indoors — open windows and leave
the building. Turn off the gas source and call your gas company. Do not use matches,
candles, open flames or electric switches indoors.
If the power goes out, keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed to keep food frozen for up to two days.
Provide assistance to your neighbors, especially the elderly or disabled. Try to make contact with your out-of- area phone contact, but avoid making local telephone calls.

Await instructions from your mission leaders who are monitoring weather radio for
instructions or an official “all clear” notice. Radio stations will broadcast what to do,
the location of emergency shelters and medical aid stations, and the extent of damage.

Wow, please be safe! You're in our prayers...here comes a breeze to cool things off-ha-ha! Love you tons...we will keep an eye on the news!!!

ok  love y'all too :)  talk to you next week  take care

All day today and into the evening there are tornado watches for his little town, and most of the south east! Sending lots of prayers!!
