Mayor issues storm warning for Sunday evening

Mayor Ben Blake sent the following storm advisory Sunday, advising residents to pay attention to weather conditions:

A strong storm system is impacting our area and flood watches and high wind watches have been issued. The storm’s intensity is forecast to ramp up this evening with significant rainfall, wind gusts up to 55 MPH, and potential flash flooding.

As the City prepares for the storm, we ask that residents continue to monitor weather conditions, secure all outdoor objects susceptible to high winds, and help to keep the tops of catch basins clear of leaves and debris.

It is especially important for shoreline residents to be vigilant. With the chance of flooding in areas of low elevation, please be sure to take all necessary precautions, including moving vehicles to higher ground.
