[ARCHIVED] Strong Winds, Severe Weather Alert


The National Weather Service is predicting high winds in the SF Bay Area in effect until Thursday morning at 10AM. Strong winds may blow down limbs, trees, and power
lines. Scattered power outages are expected. 

As always, the Town's Public Works Department is recommending you prepare for the storms by following these tips to ensure you and your family stays safe : 

-Make sure your emergency back-up power generators, sump pumps, and other detention systems are in good working order. 

-Assure your flashlights are filled with fresh batteries and in a handy location as well as candles and lanterns to help deal with a small scale power outage.  

-Check and restock your emergency kits.

-Drive Safe!

In addition, for those concerned with the possibility of small scale flooding issues, the Town offers up to 20 sandbags free of charge to its residents. Residents can visit the Public Works Corporation Yard at 99 Station Lane and load the bags using the shovel and bags provided. The facility is located behind the permit center and is available 24/7/365. 

During the worst weather episodes, you can count on your Public Works and Police Departments to be there. Please remember that if you must travel during a storm, do observe our vehicles with their trademark flashing amber lights. This could be a sign of a downed tree or flooding, but it generally marks a worker in the streets away from their vehicle. So please remember to look out for us while we’re looking out for you!
