Why it is critically important to store water!
NO WATER: Cars lined up as far as the eye can see in Emporia!! Families are waiting to get a half case of water from Westar and volunteers - donations are coming from all over the state.
Water main break has left 25-30K people without water on a dangerously hot day.
Just this week, there have been two major incidents that have forced people to leave their homes. The flooding in Louisiana causing extensive damage (25 inches of rain over a couple of days will do that). The wildfires outside San Bernadino, CA leading to the evacuation of 82,000 people. Either one could happen here. Be prepared. Get your 72 hour kit together. Create a disaster plan with your family. Your life could literally depend on it!
It's almost here! Just 10 more days until the Mesa South Stake Preparedness fair! Saturday, July 16 from 9am to 12pm at the LDS Church at 1415 E. Southern.
