Safety finds home in Adams Co. shelter

NATCHEZ — Thursday will mark the official ground breaking for the building Adams County officials say will stand against hurricanes, tornados and straight-line winds like they are little more than a spring zephyr.

After nearly seven years of proposals, funding questions, planning, bidding and value engineering, Adams County officials will break ground on the FEMA 361 storm shelter meant to withstand the force of an EF5 tornado.

Adams County Emergency Management Director Stan Owens tells The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/O394Ti ) work has already begun ahead of the official groundbreaking, with county crews removing asphalt and outdated electrical infrastructure from the area.
