Hurricane Irene - Press Release
Friday, August 26, 2011

Citizens should be preparing for the effects of Hurricane Irene this weekend. Emergency Management officials are urging citizens to have an Emergency Kit prepared for 2-3 days. Kits should include drinkable water, can foods, supplies for the elderly and infants as well as batteries, flashlights, etc. in the event of the power loss. Our area is expected to be hit around Saturday afternoon lasting about 24 hours. Please Stay Safe Please see the press release below from Caroline County Emergency Management Date: August 26, 2011 Time: 1300 Location: Denton, Caroline County, Maryland Event: Preparations for Hurricane Irene The Caroline County government urges all residents of Caroline County to prepare their family for the impact and effects of Hurricane Irene. A local state of emergency was declared by the County Commissioners beginning at noon on Friday, August 26. The County may experience winds in excess of 50 mph, with gusts of 75 mph, and 6 to 12 inches of rain. Prepare for possible power outages. Residents of low-lying, flood prone areas and mobile homes are encouraged to take shelter in a safer environment. Such residents should stay with family or friends, or use one of the two emergency shelters being operated at Federalsburg and Goldsboro Volunteer Fire Companies. The shelters will open at 10 AM on Saturday. Remember to fill your vehicles with gas prior to the onset of the storm and to fully charge your cell phones. Secure or store any items that can blow around and cause damage. Flying debris can be very dangerous. Provide for the safety of your pets. When the storm hits, stay indoors and do not drive. After the storm passes, do not drive through water covered streets, you may be swept away. Be careful of downed power lines and exercise caution while clearing debris. The best safety measure for your family is to be prepared for the storm. Have an emergency supply kit which will allow your family to survive for several days. When preparing for the emergency, think about the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air, and warmth. Have extra non-perishable food and water. Most of this storm will occur during the night, so have flashlights and extra batteries. Be sure to have supplies for babies (formula and diapers), battery-powered radios, important personal papers, prescriptions, pet foods, extra clothing, and pillows and blankets. If you need preparedness information or have questions, contact the Department of Emergency Services at 410-479-2622.
