Impending Storm - Community Advisory

Dear Takoma Park Community,

As we prepare for the impending rain event today and possibly into Friday, I would like to share with you a few reminders and pieces of important information.

* There is a possibility of high winds so be sure to secure your loose belongings around the outside of your home.

* There is a possibility of down trees and power lines so be alert to road closures and detours.

* There may be flooding in low lying areas and creeks.

* Prepare for possible power outages with food, water, batteries and a charged cell phone.

As always, City staff is working diligently in preparing for potential storm aftermath. We will be providing updates on Facebook, Twitter, TP Alert and the website (www.takomaparkmd.gov).

Your safety is our highest priority and please be safe and use caution during the storm.
