Valdosta, GA - Do you know what to do in case of a tornado, hurricane or other disaster?

New research from the Georgia Emergency Management Agency shows three out of four Georgians are at least somewhat prepared for a disaster situation, which is the highest in the six year history of the annual study.

It's all part of their "Ready Georgia" campaign. The survey asks people if they're ready with shelter, supplies, evacuation routes, and much more.

"What you really need to concentrate on are those first 72 hours. That means supplies for your children if you have babies and that means your medicine if you're on any kind of drugs. There's also your eyeglasses, your prescriptions, any paper work that you would need to put your family back together," said Paige Dukes, Lowndes Co Spokeswoman, speaking on behalf of Lowndes EMA.
