TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo Fire Chief, Thomas Walker says people need to watch out for dead limbs falling from trees in tomorrow's storm.
However, he says the big problem is when the root system weakens.
With the amount of rain we have had in the area, Walker says the root systems are already weak.
Couple that wind gust of seventy miles per hour or more the area is expecting, Walker says trees are at risk for falling.
Many trees are also still weak from Tropical Storm Olga that came through a few months ago.
Chief Walker says you need to take precautions.
He recommends going outside to see if there are any tall trees that could possibly fall on your house.
If they are in the path of your safe place, he recommends changing your safe place location.
