Were coming to the end of Severe Weather Awareness Week, and Friday in Rogers the Department of Emergency Management met with people at the local Walmart. Officials used the opportunity to give demonstrations and free advice about ways to stay safe when the weather gets bad. "I think its real beneficial, because they can get direct information for the questions they have," said Mike Dixon, from Benton Co. Emergency Management. "You may not be able to find the questions on a web site or those kinds of places. but they can come and ask the questions directly, and we can help them."
