Tornado warning for Lawrence County. The tornado sirens are sounding in the city. Please take shelter and be #wxaware

This is an update from the National Weather Service out of Springfield. Please be #wxaware this afternoon and tonight, and as always, be safe!

Please read this released information from the FCC in regards to a "Can you hear me?" phone scam. It gives great advice about how to handle phone calls like this, and as always, do not give anyone your personal information over the phone unless they can confirm who they are. Be safe, be aware, be smart.

**UPDATE** The owner has been located and she is back home, safe and sound. Thanks for the help everyone! If anyone recognizes this Husky, please let us know via comment, message, or phone call. I'm sure it would rather be in its nice and warm house instead of canine jail. Thanks!!

Please remember that the Statewide tornado drill is at 10am
