[ARCHIVED] Hurricane Safety

Hurricane Dorian is heading north and is expected to pass by to the south of us Friday night.

While we are hopeful that we will not be impacted, First Selectman Tom Banisch reminds us it is a good idea to understand what precautions to take for this, or for subsequent events. 

The following is from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):

As the storm track and severity of Hurricane Dorian changes, it’s important for those in its forecasted path to stay alert to the dangers it could bring.

Pay attention to the forecast in your area, and be prepared to follow guidance from local officials. You may be ordered to evacuate with little notice. Be ready to leave, have a plan for where you will go.

Impacted areas could experience life-threatening storm surge, dangerous winds and significant infrastructure damage in the coming days. This could include damage to power, water and road systems.

The window of time to prepare is rapidly closing, so don’t wait to finalize your storm preparations.

  • Download the FEMA app (in English or Spanish) for directions to open shelters, a customizable checklist of emergency supplies, disaster survival tips, and weather alerts from the National Weather Service.
  • Visit Ready.gov for more information on what you can do ahead of this dangerous storm.

FEMA and its federal, state, local, tribal partners will continue to dedicate resources and staff until this storm is no longer a threat to our country.
