Small cities prepare for major storms

Posted:

With that big storm, small towns like Palmyra are making sure they have a plan if a big storm hits. Mayor Loren Graham says the city has discussed what to do if the power goes out and which residents would need extra attention.  Graham said some Palmyra crews went to Hannibal to help with the clean-up process and he believes that has benefited his city.

"And I think they learned a lot of stuff by being down there and maybe some things that we would be able to do to maybe avoid some problems that maybe they had with the aftermath of the storm," he said. 

Graham said department heads and city officials will meet sometime in July to develop a storm response plan.
