"It's hard to imagine severe weather is just weeks away," said Jerry Gibson, Jackson County Emergency Management director. "Just a few weeks ago we were in the grips of a severe winter ice storm."
Feb. 25, Jackson County and City of Altus will host a severe weather briefing from the National Weather Service at 6:30 p.m. at the Southwest Technology Center, 711 W Tamarack.
"This briefing is important to the City of Altus to continue with the StormReady program," said Lloyd Colston, Altus Emergency Management director.
