Weather Alert for Rocky Ripple residents

Given the severity of the storm projections, the Town Council and community volunteers are preparing to provide assistance to as necessary.

The Town Hall will be opened to residents who have nowhere to go in the event of power outages in the community. Contact Robert Tomey 374-3270 if you have no power. If the Town Hall is opened to residents, Robert suggested bringing personal provisions such as food, pillows, and blankets.

Meanwhile, extra salt has been scattered on the canal path and the bridges into Rocky Ripple have been salted.

Should this winter storm cause downed branches that block roads, residents with chain saws are invited to volunteer to clear roads so that emergency access through town remains open. Contact Robert Tomey if you have a chain saw and can help.

As with any weather emergency, the American Red Cross posts information on how to prepare you and your family for an emergency.
