Seaford Monitoring Sandy's Approach

Posted:

SEAFORD, Del.- The city of Seaford said that in advance of Hurricane Sandy, crews are working to remove leaves and limbs that have been placed on the streets for pickup.

The city is asking its residents to not place any further piles or limbs along the curb line until after the storm. According to officials, these piles reduce the drainage capabilities, and with the expected rainfall it is imperative that the streets be clear.

In addition, the city is requesting its residents to assist with drainage monitoring, by keeping an eye on the catch basins in their areas and removing any debris that may prevent drainage. Crews will be monitoring these as well, but officials said the additional assistance from residents will make a significant difference on the impact of this storm within the community.

Residents are urged to call 9-1-1 only in emergencies. Those with storm-related calls – to report power outages or downed trees – are asked to call the city's after hours line at (302) 629-4550. In the event of downed power lines, residents are urged to call the aforementioned telephone number and stay clear of the lines altogether. 

City residents are encouraged to bring in or fasten down any outside objects, such as lawn chairs, trash cans, barbeque grills, etc., which may become projectile items. Residents are also encouraged to gather storm readiness supplies, such as water, medications, food supply, etc.

Complete checklists and emergency preparedness plans can be found at www.ready.gov or www.redcross.org/prepare/location/home-family.
