Although there is still some uncertainty on how much we will be affected by Hurricane Sandy, it never hurts to get ready now.
Sam Johnson is putting his leafblower to work Friday evening, trying to beat whatever the storm may bring. "I want to get the leaves up to try to keep the sewers and stuff and storm drains from stopping up." said Johnson
That's exactly what the city of Waynesboro is asking people to do. Gary Critzer, the Director of Emergency Management for Waynesboro says "If they've already got leaves down by the roadside, check that and if they've covered up an inlet or again in the curb or gutter, get them back in the yard where they won't provide an obstruction."
Critzer makes sure everything is in place in case of an emergency. He says you should have a family disaster plan and a family disaster kit with enough items to last at least 72 hours. "Having things on hand like non-perishable foods, drinking water, flashlights and batteries, emergency contact list. some cash." said Critzer
Johnson says "We're gonna have everything ready and I'm sure I'll work all day tomorrow to get the rest of it done up so I'll be ready for it.."
