Hurricane Preparedness

With Hurricane Dorian a possibility for the upcoming weekend we wanted to make some resources available to our citizens. There is a pdf download from the RedCross below as well as links to both local and national resources.

Before a Hurricane: Listen to local area radio, NOAA radio or TV stations for information. Be prepared to evacuate and know your routes and destinations. Check your emergency kit and replenish as needed.
During A Hurricane: Stay indoors in a room without windows. Use flashlights if the power goes out, do not use candles. Don't walke on beaches, riverbanks or in flood waters. Continue listening to local area radio, NOAA radio or local TV stations for storm updates.
