Thank you for preparing for Edouard

To the Editor,

The staff of the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management would like to thank the citizens of Liberty County for preparing for Tropical Storm Edouard. We wer fortunate that the storm did not intensify and simply made its way across the county without causing much damage.

Members of our fire departments, emergency medical services and law enforcement were all prepared for the event. City and county officials communicated well, and had this storm created serious problems in our county, it was obvious that these officials were concerned with the safety of their citizens and were ready to respond.

The next storm may not be so kind to us, so please continue to be vigilant. We cannot control Mother Nature, but if we respond as we did in this event, we will be ready for whatever comes our way.

Tom Branch, Liberty Co.
Emergency Management Coordinator
