The following information could be helpful for future storms that may threaten your area.
As New Yorkers closely monitor the path of Hurricane Joaquin, it is important that we prepare for the storm’s potential impacts.
Although the storm track is still uncertain, Hurricane Joaquin has the potential to affect many parts of New York State with a variety of threats -- including heavy rain, high winds, flooding, tornadoes, coastal surges, and widespread power outages.
In addition to tracking the storm’s path as it approaches, families should consider creating a “storm emergency kit” that includes items such as non-perishable food, water, cash, filled prescriptions, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, first aid kit, flashlights and extra batteries.
Your emergency plan should include a communication system and an alternate meeting place if your home is unsafe. If instructions are given to evacuate, you will be directed to a temporary, emergency refuge that will provide a safe haven for the duration of the storm or you can seek refuge with a friend or family member located away from the affected area where you may be comfortable.
As always, feel free to contact my office at your convenience if I can be of any assistance.
