Supervisors approve site plan for ‘hurricane super shelter’
Published: March 22,2013
NATCHEZ — The Adams County hurricane super shelter is on its final step of approval.
The Natchez Democrat reports the Natchez Planning Commission has approved the site plan for the $3.25-million FEMA 361 shelter that will be located near the Steckler Multi-purpose Building at Natchez High School.
The plans will now be sent for approval from FEMA, which Adams County Emergency Management director Stan Owens said could take one to three months.
The planning commission’s approval was contingent upon the city engineering department’s approval of the final revised plans.
The shelter, which will be able to withstand the equivalent of an F5 tornado and be self-sufficient for 72 hours, was first approved by FEMA in 2010.
