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 (

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