GAINESVILLE - The Northeast Georgia American Red Cross is urging all residents to take advantage ofthe official Tornado App which puts lifesaving information right in the hands of people who live in, visit or have loved ones in tornado-prone areas. <br />
This free app-available in English or Spanish-gives iPhone, iPad and Android smart phone and tablet users instant access to local and real-time information, so they know what to do before, during and after a tornado. The app includes a high-pitched siren and "tornado warning!" alert that signals people when a NOAA tornado warning has been issued in their area
An intergovernmental agreement that has been in consideration for four years that would bring turn lanes and new pavement to the intersection of McEver Road and Gainesville Street is going to wait, at least for now.
