INFORMATION ON SEVERE WEATHER ALERTS
The Village of Peotone has partnered with surrounding communities to provide enhanced severe weather warnings. East Will County communities have formed a cooperative weather alert system while still retaining Peotone's ability to activate Peotone sirens. This system provides more "eyes to the sky" for monitoring storms.
