Weather Update 10/28 – Plymouth Emergency Services

From Al Poirer, Plymouth Emergency Services

Same story. High winds and moderate rain is still being predicted. Minor flooding is a possibility but the biggest problem will be the wind.

Power outages could be our biggest problem.

Once the storm starts stay indoors and don’t venture out when the winds are gusty and there is a high chance of trees or limbs coming down.

Remember that when power lines go down there is no way of knowing if the wires are dead. Always assume that they are live unless notified by Green Mountain Power or Ludlow Electric clearly states that the power has been shut off. Stay safe.

We will open the town hall (fire department meeting room) as an emergency operations center. It will open at 2PM tomorrow (Monday) and stay open until we don’t need it. It will be staffed 24 hours a day.
