From Al Poirier, Plymouth Emergency Services
Update for potential bad weather next week The motto is “Prepare for the worst and hope for the best”. There is still a lot of uncertainty in the storm path. However there is a pretty high confidence that we will experience strong winds and moderate rain. We could see minor flooding but the biggest impact will be the wind. The weather “people” are clearly stressing that this is not an “Irene” but a very strong northeaster.
What does this mean for us in Plymouth. At this point in time we are looking at the potential of trees coming down which could or more than likely result in power outages. Strong winds could begin late Monday and last well into Tuesday night. Rain is expected to be moderate in the range of 1 to 3″ which could give us some moderate flooding but nothing significant.
Bottom line is that we need to be prepared. Time to clean up around the outside of the house and make sure all is put away or well tied down. Be prepared to be without power for an extended period of time.
Things could change and I will continue to post the latest information that is being supplied through Vermont Emergency Management and the National Weather Service.
