Emergency Management Team Coordinating Local Storm Response

The Holmes County Emergency Management Team is busy coordinating local storm response and recovery activities from the Emergency Operations Center in Bonifay.
Sheriff John Tate has advised residents to stay off local roads, as wind speeds are expected to reach hurricane force (sustained 80 mph with higher gusts) within the hour.
Residents are urged to shelter in place, and to not attempt to drive to an evacuation shelter until the wind speeds have died down.
