Faulkner County to receive StormReady designation


CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - The National Weather Service says it will recognize Faulkner County as a "StormReady" community next week.

Forecasters said that with the deaths in last April's tornado at Mayflower and Vilonia, the county now ranks fourth in tornado fatalities statewide since 1950.

A ceremony is scheduled for next Wednesday.

The "StormReady" program recognizes communities that have made a commitment to save lives and property when bad weather strikes. Forecasters noted that many Vilonia residents were able to take shelter in a community safe room. Nationally, 2,200 communities have the designation.

To be recognized as StormReady, a county must maintain a 24-hour emergency operations center and have several ways to receive weather warnings and alert the public. They also must conduct community preparedness programs and address bad weather in formal emergency plans.

The year 2014 is almost over and we have had a busy year.  Just a reminder about #GivingTuesday.  This year it falls on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.  Lupus patients, please help and support the cause of lupus.  We have worked since October 1993 so very hard as volunteers and I am happy to say that we have made many accomplishments.  People are finally taking this cruel complex disease of lupus serious.  Research in Little Rock was a big milestone.  Although the research did not work, we are praying that will not be the end of lupus research in Arkansas.  The first medication in over 50 years for lupus was approved  by FDA March 2009 and lupus has been around for many years.  It is difficult for me to believe that lupus patients only had aspirin for the excruiating pain they had to endure, but that is true.
