Hurricane / Tropical Storm Sandy
Mon. Oct 29th 2012


The entire region has been placed on alert for potential wind damage and flooding expected from Hurricane Sandy.  Forecasters are reporting this storm strength and movement is unprecedented for this region and all residents should prepare and take warnings seriously.  Although it appears our county will not be in the direct path of the eye of the storm, signigicant wind damage and flash flooding is very possible in our region due to the enormous size of this weather system.  Residents should prepare for the possibility of extended power outages and shelter "in place".

Every household should have provisions of water and food, flashlights with extra batteries, sleeping bag or warm blankets for each person, prescription medications, infant formula and diapers, pet food and water for your pet, first aid supplies, cash or travelers checks and a battery operated radio.  Residents who use alternative forms of heating for their home must do so with EXTREME CAUTION.  High wind gusts can cause chimney's to not vent properly and create carbon monoxide and products of combustion to remain in the residence. 

Generator safety is another VERY IMPORTANT area to be extra careful.  Never operate a generator inside any building as only a few minutes of the engine running can cause deadly levels of carbon monoxide inside a building.  Make certain the exhaust is far away from any opening to the residence and preferably downwind from the house.  Be careful of the maximum output of your generator as well as wire size feeding to the appliances you are planning to power.  NEVER refill the gasoline tank of a generator while the motor is still running - wait for the unit to cool before attempting to refuel.

If you find that you must venture out on the roadways during the inclement weather please drive at a reduced speed and be prepared to encounter hazards along the way.  Keep a watchful eye for trees and wires down across the roadway, roadway flooding as well as our emergency responders who may be out handling emergencies.  If we get hit hard with damage, expect to find unconventional road closures in dangerous areas.  Sometimes when we have these major storms we have no choice but to place a couple orange cones and use yellow caution tape to block off a closed roadway.  DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH A BARRIER AS IT IS MARKING A DANGEROUS AREA THAT IS NOT PASSABLE - FIND ANOTHER WAY AROUND.

Also - please note the Unity Township Supervisors have rescheduled the Unity Township Trick or Treat Night from Wednesday to this Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 6 to 8 PM.
