More Bad Weather Is Coming, 'Have A Safe Place To Go,' FEMA Chief Says

More on the devastating weather that has roared through much of the South this week.

Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency has posted a video this morning in which he warns that "today, we're going to see more severe weather."

So, he says, "it's important that everybody know what to do if a tornado warning is issued in your community — have a safe place to go and act quickly."

One place to go for warnings: the National Weather Service. Its tornado watch webpage is here. And its even more serious tornado warning page is here.
