James City County encourages residents to prepare, stay connected
County officials are monitoring weather conditions in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.
Beginning Saturday, Oct. 27 through Monday, Oct. 29, residents should expect sustained winds, rain and extended power outages. Power restoration efforts may take an extended period of time due to the size of the storm that includes much of the East Coast.
Now is the time to prepare your family and home with enough food, water, medication, cash and other supplies for at least 72 hours. Secure loose items outside.
County residents should sign up to receive local emergency alert information at JCCAlert.org. Text messaging charges may apply.
For more information, follow James City County on Facebook and Twitter, monitor local news media including TIDE Radio 92.3 FM; 107.9 WBQK FM; WMBG 740 AM; the County’s website jamescitycountyva.gov; JCC TV on Cox Cable 48; and the emergency hotline 757-875-2424.
