Our region is set to experience sustained high winds, heavy rain, and flooding, which could all continue for several days. I also encourage everyone to utilize www.Ready.gov and other online resources which will help all of us remain as informed as possible of the storm’s trajectory, along with safety precautions that can be taken now and following the storm.”
