Winter Weather is Coming

Are You Ready for Fall Weather?

Rain, wind, and snow can cause local flooding, debris flows, and power outages. It can also make rivers and creeks flow high and fast which can be dangerous if pets or people fall in.  Try to reduce impacts to your home by clearing leaves and debris from gutters and catch basins so that you don't have localized flooding. If you live near waterways, stay alert for changing conditions and rising water levels. For more information on hazards and what you can do go to www.nsemo.org/hazards/natural.

Have an emergency plan and make a kit. For more information go to www.nsemo.org/preparedness.
