O.C. Recommending Citizens Take Precautions for Sandy

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City Emergency Services officials say they are continuing to monitor the projected path of Hurricane Sandy.

Residents, businesses and visitors are encouraged to plan in advance for the expected effects of the storm. Residents and property owners, including mobile home owners, in the low lying areas should secure their homes and prepare for flooding. In addition, all watercraft objects and outdoor furniture should be sheltered or protected. Officials said citizens should also prepare for possible power outages lasting several hours or even several days. In the event of a power loss, citizens should make sure they have a disaster supply kit with water, non-perishable food, a change of clothes, extra medications and any special items you needed for infants, children and pets.

Officials said that if the power goes out, remember that daytime temperatures are expected to drop after the storm. Citizens should make sure they have extra blankets and appropriate clothing to deal with cooler temperatures if you power is out. Also, make sure cell phones and other electronic devices are fully charged. Consider purchasing a car charger if you don't already have one.

Officials said that during the storm, the Town of Ocean City will be posting storm-related information on various websites, social media outlets and through the GovDelivery system. In an effort to keep citizens informed with the most updated and accurate information, the Town of Ocean City will be posting storm related information on the following outlets:
