Lake County Deemed Storm Ready

Posted: Updated:

As winter weather begins to stake it's claim on Northern Michigan, communities are looking to get as much of a jump on big storms as possible.

If they do, the National Weather Service certifies them as 'Storm Ready'.

Today, Lake County was named the 15th Storm Ready County in the state at a presentation in Baldwin.

Storm ready communities have the plans, procedures, equipment and personnel ready to notify their public of imminent weather.

The sooner people know a storm is coming, the safer they can be.

9&10's Eric Lloyd was at the presentation returned with more details.
