Flood watch? Don’t get wet

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for today and a warning for tomorrow. Don’t get swept away!

Have an emergency kit available in your home for safety and most importantly, peace of mind.

Necessities include:

-At least a 3 day supply of water and non-perishable food items

-Flashlight

-Extra batteries

-First aid kit

-Extra cash

-Emergency contacts

During the storm

-Listen to area radio reports

-Head to higher ground

-Keep an eye on your children, they tend to be curious and could wander into contaminated/unsafe areas

 After the storm

-Return home when officials have deemed it safe to do so

-Wear protective clothing during cleanup like rubber gloves and boots

-When in doubt, throw it out!
