Hurricane Irene, and an Earthquake

In case you've been living under a rock (no reference to the Geico commercial), Hurricane Irene is projected to come up the eastern seaboard this weekend, bringing with it potentially damaging winds and flooding rains.

I have scheduled a meeting on Thursday evening with the Emergency Management Team to review our plans and make sure that we, as a Borough are prepared for whatever Mother Nature may toss our way. Think back a few years to Hurricane Ivan - remember what happened then.

I'll be in touch after that meeting. In the meantime, it might not be a bad idea to review your own emergency plans - and take an inventory of your emergency supplies (canned goods, batteries, water, etc.) to make sure that you are prepared.

PS - did anyone feel the earthquake today? That was, in my opinion, pretty darn cool.
