GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -

Having children out waiting for buses, or actually on buses, when severe weather hits is something the Greeneville City Schools are prepared for.

Greeneville had buses on the road Wednesday morning when a tornado warning was issued.

There was already a plan in place and school leaders immediately put that plan into action. "As soon as the tornado warning was issued, we immediately sent the buses to the closest school and sheltered in place," said Linda Stroud, the Greeneville Director of Schools. "I think we had four buses with a total of 120 children."

An alert also went out to parents through the school system to make them aware of the situation.
