By C Craig

APPOMATTOX COUNTY (WSLS 10) - Appomattox County is getting ready to launch a new alert system. The system was created following the deadly tornado that hit Evergreen in February.

The system is designed to send alerts by text or phone call to those who have signed up.

On Wednesday, the county used the alert system to tell people about the tornado warning.

This new alert system doesn't just cover sever weather, it can also be used to inform people of any kind of danger, such as a hazardous spill or hostage situation.
