BRONSON - "Prepare and stay aware! The Florida spring tornado season is upon us," Levy County Emergency Management Director Mark Johnson said on Feb. 6.

Know the threat of hazardous weather exists, Johnson said. Prepare for potential problems caused by these climactic events, he said, by having a weather radio and a disaster kit. Know what to do when dangerous weather strikes, he added.
