Winkle attempted to turn left on Opal when he struck Draper.
September is National Preparedness Month. With that said, the American Red Cross of the Eastern Texas Panhandle is encouraging households to create a family disaster plan.
Plans need to include designating a meeting place right outside the home, in case of a sudden emergency like a fire; an out-of-area emergency contact person, and a location where everyone should meet if they are not able to go home.
All members of the house need to work together on the emergency plan and each person needs to know how to reach other family members.
