CEMA enters 'enhanced monitoring' phase for Florence

Posted By on Sat, Sep 8, 2018 at 10:35 AM

Due to Tropical Storm Florence, the Chatham Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) has advanced to "OPCON 4," which means enhanced monitoring.

Florence is currently a Tropical Storm and is expected to strengthen to a hurricane over the weekend. Residents and businesses should monitor your normal sources for current weather information.

Here's CEMA's checklist on what to do now:

Monitor local authorities for advice and protective actions.

Prepare or inspect your emergency supply kit, and do not forget your pet’s kit too.

Create or update your family evacuation plan, detailing how and where you will evacuate and where you could meet if separated.

Document important belongings and consider taking pictures or video of your home.

Inspect your property for loose, lightweight items that could become airborne.

If you have functional access or medical needs call the Chatham County Public Health Department to sign up for the registry, 1-833-CHD-REGISTER

    Stacey Abrams appears ready to break that mold. Not only because she’s notably not a member of an established political family, but because among other positive qualities, she likes campaigning, and she’s really good at it.
