Flooding after 2011's Irene.

Severe Weather Precautions

In anticipation of severe storms, please be sure to do the following:

Remove and Secure Property: Articles of personal property at the waterfront and elsewhere should be brought inside or substantially secured. Particular attention should be paid to articles which can be picked up by storm winds — furniture, boating equipment, inflatables, fuel containers, surfing platforms, dock sections, etc. Check the shoreline carefully, and note the water level; a deluge may result in overflows!

Identify Property: Make sure that all property, including dock sections, is marked to identify ownership — name, address, telephone number. Since much property may become airborne during a powerful storm, the task of owner identification will be simplified if all property is marked.

Emergency Services: Call 911 for police, fire and ambulance assistance.
