Weather Net

Here is a guide to when there will be a weather net.

If there is a Significant Weather Advisory or Watch there will be no
Putnam County TN ARES Weather Net but it doesn't hurt to monitor the 147.210+.

If there is a Thunderstorm Warning, Tornado Watch or Tornado Warning
there will be a Putnam County TN ARES Weather Net so get on the 147.210+.

Tornado Watch or Warning is an automatic deployment by EMA,
so you should get on your radio so that you can be directed what to do.

There is an article in the Herald Citizen that might interest some.

The link at the end of the article is something everyone should read.

You could find something that you didn't know.
