Nashville television meteorologist Charlie Neese has partnered with the First Baptist Church of Fayetteville and Lincoln County Heath System to present TornadoSafe, a live, multimedia tornado safety program, on Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 6:30 p.m.

This presentation is open to everyone in Fayetteville and the surrounding area.

“Weather Service records show that more than 50 tornadoes have touched down within 50 miles Lincoln County just in the last five years,” Neese said. “Everyone should know exactly how to protect themselves from these storms.

“People are needlessly dying from tornadoes, because they don’t hear the warnings, they ignore them, they don’t know what to do or they don’t have a safe place to go. I address all of these issues in the TornadoSafe program,” he continued.

TornadoSafe, presented by Lincoln County Health System, is being offered for free to anyone wishing to attend.
