2012 AJC Decatur Book Festival weekend forecast – hot and humid with slight chance of thunderstorms.

In the event that a major storm does make an appearance, festival goers should look for the “Storm Shelter Area” signs designating safe places to seek cover from the elements.  

You will find them at City Hall (509 N. McDonough Street) and the Old Courthouse on the Square (101 E. Court Square). And if you’re not close to either of those places, you can also pop in to any of the other author venues to seek shelter.

If you have any questions about storm shelters, contact the Decatur Fire Department at 404-373-5092 or visit the First Aid tent on the MARTA plaza during the festival.
