HOLLISTER, Mo. – The citizens of Hollister are looking for answers after a group of residents were forced to stand outside and wait for someone to come unlock the community storm shelter during the early Wednesday morning storms.
Hollister School District Public Relations Director Debbie Redford reports:
Redford adds in the last two years, this is the first time this problem has come up, but she says it’s a problem with a solution:
Redford says she has been informed that Hollister Assistant Superintendent Sean Woods called every member of the storm shelter committee 12 hours before the storm warning went off, to inform them of the possibility of a storm warning being issued during the night.
Redford says she can guarantee the community that they will not find another FEMA operation in Southwest Missouri or anyplace else that is as aware or as well informed as the committee for the Hollister Storm Shelter.
