Preparing for Hurricane Sandy…

The forecast for this exceptional storm with severe winds and heavy rainfall requires all of us to take steps now, and to be safe when we do. While severe impacts from Hurricane Sandy are not anticipated to occur until Monday, this weekend is the time to:

  • REMOVE your boats from all docks
  • SECURE or STORE all outside furniture, garbage cans, boats and anything else not tied down
  • WRITE DOWN or store in your cell phone Sussex Rural’s number 877-504-6463 to report power outages
  • LOOK UP your homeowner’s insurance company’s telephone number and your policy number and keep both in a safe place
  • CHECK the drains around your house and your roof gutters for clogs and debris
  • LEND A HANDclear any storm drains near your home clogged with leaves
  • KEEP your cell phone charged

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has a handy guide for preparing for emergencies. The Philadelphia/Mount Holly Office of the National Weather Service provides a detailed briefing for emergency management for Hurricane Sandy.
