BE PREPARED FOR ANY EMERGENCY
Winter weather in our region can mean heavy rainfall, windstorms and arctic outbreaks. Intense, prolonged rainfall can result in creeks overtopping, sewer backups, flooding or landslides. Windstorms can cause power outages, damage to property and blocked roads. Arctic outbreaks can cause cold temperatures and icy conditions.
Prepare by knowing the risks, making your home more resilient and having an emergency plan. Follow weather forecasts and check local conditions before heading out. When creeks are high, stay away from river banks as they may be undercut. Keep home gutters and street drains clear of leaves and debris.
