Joel Sandifer, director of the Washington County Emergency Management, and his team always have an ear to the radio and an eye to the sky when it comes to weather.

They also send out weather watchers to stationery positions throughout the county where they can watch for threatening weather.
"If something does happen we have our people to get out and respond as quick as possible," he said."We are always in contact with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA)."
Sandifer said there were reports of possible heavy rain this morning but things should be clearing out by this afternoon.
