Tropical Storm Update
Make plans early and stay tuned to WBKO and local radio stations for storm updates.
Monitor storm reports and keep a log of hurricane condition. Remember evacuation routes can sometimes be closed up to 20 hours before landfall by gusting winds or flooding.
|Be sure your radio has fresh batteries. A radio is a useful source of information in the event that electric power is unavailable.|
Stock flashlights and batteries.
Fill your vehicle's gastank as soon as hurricane watch is posted, as fuel pumps will not work if the electricity is out.
Store non-perishable, packaged foods which will not require preparation or cooking.
Keep clean, air-tight containers to store enough Aquafina drinking water for days.
