Delaware Valley Prepares for a Big Winter Storm
By now, you’re likely aware that the weather forecast is calling for a big winter storm this weekend; the first winter weather we have received this season. Meteorologists are even forecasting blizzard-like conditions for large portions of the tri-state area. In addition to significant amounts of snow, ice, and sleet, cold temperatures, and strong winds can prove hazardous.
Lundy Law wants to make sure that you have the information and resources you need to stay safe as we weather the storm.
Here are a few questions you should ask yourself to prepare for Winter Storm Jonas:
- Do you have enough food for your family for the long weekend?
- Where is my Emergency First Aid Kit? Is it well stocked?
- Do I have ice melt, kitty litter, or sand?
- Do I need my prescriptions refilled?
- Where are my flashlights? Do I have extra batteries?
- Where is my emergency radio?
- Is my shovel and ice scraper and snow blower in a convenient location?
