Subject: Winter Storm Arriving Today

The Town will see a strong winter storm characterized as an “atmospheric river.” Rain is forecast to begin on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, in the afternoon and continuing into Wednesday. The winter storm will bring a significant amount of rain that will lead to localized flooding and even make the roads dangerous. The storm will also have higher winds with potential for trees and debris to come down in the pathways and parks. Residents should take caution on the roadways, particularly during nighttime hours, and avoid flooded areas.

Public Works crews will monitor creek volume, drains and inlets, and areas which are prone to localized flooding.

Residents are encouraged to stay informed by signing up for Nixle at www.nixle.com and by using the Town website, local regional radio and television, weather services, and other reliable emergency information outlets.

In the event of an emergency, please call 911 or the Sherriff’s Office at (707) 944-9228.
