Pennsylvanians Urged to Monitor Weather, Prepare for Heavy Rain and Possible Flooding

first_imgPennsylvanians Urged to Monitor Weather, Prepare for Heavy Rain and Possible Flooding SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release,  PSA,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – With the threat of heavy rain expected to impact much of the commonwealth overnight tonight, Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) are reminding citizens to monitor weather conditions and prepare for possible flooding.“The best way to approach impending adverse weather is by being prepared and accessing accurate information from experts,” Governor Wolf said. “PEMA, county emergency personnel and law enforcement are the state’s experts and their warnings should be heeded.”PEMA advises people to have multiple ways to get severe weather alerts, such as a NOAA weather radio or cell phone alerts. Local media outlets are also a good source of local weather information and conditions.“Parts of the state could see as much as three inches of rain by the time this system ends,” said PEMA Director Richard D. Flinn, Jr. “We’re not expecting significant river flooding, but people need to be mindful of the possibility of small creek and stream flooding, and in urban or poor drainage areas where flooding is common.”PEMA notes that it’s important for people to understand the difference between a watch and a warning because they represent different levels of action to be taken.A flood or flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for flooding to occur. Residents should stay alert and watch for rapidly rising waters, including rivers and streams, and be prepared to move to high ground quickly.A flood or flash flood warning means that there is actual flooding, or flooding is imminent. Residents should act at once and move to high ground.Always follow the guidance of local emergency personnel or law enforcement if you are told to evacuate. Be familiar with multiple ways to evacuate places where you spend a lot of time, such as your home and work location.Motorists should be prepared for travel delays or road closures due to heavy rain and possible flooding. Motorists who drive around or through signs or traffic control devices closing a road or highway due to hazardous conditions could face increased fines, particularly if the violation requires emergency responders to be called. While water on a flooded road might not look deep, the road could actually be washed away under the water, or the road could be compromised in a way that could make it unsafe to travel.center_img April 15, 2018last_img read more

Fortune: United are different now

first_imgFormer Manchester United star Quinton Fortune has claimed Jose Mourinho should be more worried about the explosive second weekend showdown at Old Trafford than new Red Devils boss David Moyes. Fortune described United’s opening five fixtures, which start at Swansea, followed by that titanic meeting with Chelsea before trips to Liverpool and Manchester City, as “unbelievable”. Mourinho could be excused a wry smile considering he lost just once in the Premier League to United, and defeated them in the Champions League with Real Madrid this season, and has never been beaten by Moyes. However, Fortune feels there is an element of the unknown about the Red Devils, which will make the man who has been touted as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor feel slightly uneasy. “Mourinho has been boasting about his record against United,” Fortune told MUTV. “He always brings it up.” He added: “But this is a different manager, with a different style of play. If David Moyes brings the same desire and fighting spirit that he had at Everton I am sure Mourinho will find it tough. “He is playing a completely different United and I am sure he is worried about that. He knew Sir Alex Ferguson for many years. He knows what type of team to play against him. It is a different ball game now.” One-time United defender Henning Berg accepted it was a tough start, although pointing out the uncertainty over Michael Laudrup’s position at Swansea may be an advantage for United. However, with United, Chelsea and Manchester City under different stewardship, he feels it puts even more emphasis on the respective pre-season campaigns. “The recruitment in August is going to be important,” he said. “If they are not 100 per cent sure about bringing a player in, this might tip it. It will be interesting to see how long it takes these teams to get to their best form. Looking at these fixtures, they will have to get there quickly.” Cardiff’s Mark Hudson, whose team open at West Ham, declared himself fit for the forthcoming campaign. The Bluebirds captain, who missed the end of the Championship-winning campaign with ankle trouble, said: “I’m back running now, I’ve been in the last 10 days and I will be ready to start when everyone else is back in.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
