Weather advisories, watches and warnings issued by the National Weather Service will also be posted on the page.
The site will also contain information on how to prepare for a storm along with other information that will be useful to Monroe County residents.
In making this announcement, Wilson said Facebook is a great social medium that will enable the county to relay pertinent information to County residents and such information can be shared through a status post.
