In the meantime, now is a good time to create or check your disaster supply kit and family disaster plan. Potential impacts of this storm are: flooding, debris, high winds, and power outages.”

Officials have asked residents, visitors and property owners to closely monitor weather conditions and forecasts over the next several days to stay informed about the possible effects from Hurricane Sandy. Secure all loose items on and around your property and prepare to move vehicles to higher ground in flood prone areas. There is no information regarding any evacuations at this point, either voluntary or mandatory

If you have an elderly family member on the island please make arraignments with them now.

Residents should get ready by clearing gutters, securing outdoor furniture, and clearing storm drains.

With the potential for strong storms the county urged residents to take these steps:

Prepare –  Assemble a Kit of Emergency Supplies – Batteries, flashlight, radio, first-aid kit, medications, food and water to last three or more days, can opener, cooking tools, toiletries.
