Limestone County is hoping those with storm shelters will register them with the county to help provide aid in case of disaster.
According to Matt Groveton, Limestone County emergency management coordinator, the Limestone County Storm Shelter Registry is a program initiated by the Limestone County Office of Emergency Management.

“The purpose of the Storm Shelter Registry is to provide a database of storm shelter locations in Limestone County to assist emergency agencies in providing aid to victims of severe weather,” he said in a press release. “The registry will be a valuable tool for emergency agencies in locating and assisting residents that may have been trapped in their storm shelters by tornado debris.”
