As part of the agreement to drop the charges, Smollett agreed to forfeit the $10,000 bail he posted when he was arrested in February.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that the bail money “doesn’t come close” to paying for the amount of resources spent on the Smollett investigation.

Jussie appeared in court for an emergency hearing on Tuesday.

Previously, he had been charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging an attack on himself.

The case has been dismissed by the court and the files will be sealed from the public.

Chicago P.D. said further questions need to go through the State’s Attorney’s Office.

What is your take now?

Did we judge Jussie too soon?

Will he be totally vindicated?

Michigan residents, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to take part in this drill to be fully prepared for any possibilities.

Earlier this month, two severe tornadoes touched Shiawassee County, resulting in damage to sixty homes…

We encourage residents to learn more facts about severe weather, put together an emergency preparedness kit, make an emergency plan and emergency contacts for yourself and family!

Since tornado season is right around the corner, below is a list of tornado facts that can help you prep in case you find yourself in a dire situation…

1). Hiding under a freeway or overpass will not protect you, it could put you in more danger. Under an overpass, winds can be squeezed together and actually be stronger.

–If you were to climb to higher ground, the winds will actually be faster. And, overpasses also tend to collect debris.

2).  The farther away you are from the tornado, the less likely you are to be hit by debris, but tornadoes are so powerful that light items have been known to float a really long way.

–125 miles away or further the better

3). When confronted with a tornado warning, you should not open all the windows in your house to equalize the pressure. It’s also a waste of valuable time when seconds count. With cars, washing machines and refrigerators swirling in a tornado, you opening the windows won’t make a difference.

–Dont be stressed worrying about the items in your home, get to your safe spot as soon as possible!
