Grady County has been re-recognized as a "StormReady County" by the National Weather Service's Norman Forecast Office StormReady Advisory Board.
"The citizens and the leadership of Grady County should be very proud of this accomplishment," David L. Andra, Jr., NWS Meteorologist in Charge, said. "The StormReady recognition indicates that Grady County has taken extra steps to be ready to handle weather emergencies."
There are many factors contributing to the recognition including having weather radios in key areas of the county such as at the Grady County Fairgrounds, Dale Thompson, Grady County Emergency Management Director, said.
The recognition is valid for three years and will expire on Aug. 25, 2020.
According to the NWS, there are currently 30 counties, 60 communities, three military bases, 10 universities, one commercial site and 15 StormReady supporters.
