ALBERT LEA, Minn. — We’ve been hearing about the potential for severe weather to enter our area later this evening and southern Minnesota counties are ready.

Freeborn County Emergency Management, along with the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office has been making preparations for this round of severe weather.

With the Annual Big Island Rendezvous underway in Albert Lea, which brings in many visitors, leaders say they have plans in place if the weather becomes an issue.

“We’ve got the Big Island Rendezvous going on, so we’ve been in touch with the people out there and we went out and worked out an evacuation plan for that if necessary,” Emergency Management Director Rich Hall said.

He says there is still a slight risk for severe weather and folks should keep their eye to the sky and stay aware tonight.
