A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from December 16th , 12 PM EST until December 17th, 10 AM EST. This storm has the potential of dropping 12-20 inches of snow along with sleet and wind gusts. We ask all residents to prepare and if you have a power outage; please report it using one of the following methods:
FirstEnergy encourages customers to plan ahead for the possibility of electric service interruptions from winter weather by following these tips:
Keep electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops and tablet computers fully charged to be ready for any emergencies.
Keep a flashlight, portable radio and extra batteries handy in the event a power interruption occurs. Tune to a local station for current storm information.
Never use a portable generator inside the house or a closed garage in the event of a power outage. Ensure the proper generator is selected and installed by a qualified electrician. When operating a generator, the power coming into the home should always be disconnected. Otherwise, power from the generator could be sent back onto the utility lines, creating a hazardous situation for utility workers.
Gather extra blankets or a sleeping bag for each person. Do not use gas stoves, kerosene heaters or other open-flame heat sources to prevent deadly carbon monoxide gas from building up in your home.
If you have a water well and pump, keep an emergency supply of bottled water and/or fill your bathtub with fresh water.
Stock an emergency supply of convenience foods that do not require cooking.
Mobile phones can be charged in your vehicle using a car charger when the power is out. If you have a smart phone, this will ensure you have access to online information sources.
Here’s What You Can Do To Help:
Please assist the Department of Public Works by removing all vehicles from the road during snow removal operations. While parking is prohibited in designated areas, the Township would ask that you be courteous to your neighbors, our DPW professionals, and all our first responders. Help keep our roads as clean and accessible as possible
Alert: FBI Reports Armed Protests Planned for All 50 States
A bombshell report this afternoon from ABC News: “The FBI has ‘received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January. They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur,’ according to a bulletin obtained by ABC,” reports Aaron Katersky.
A reporter at today’s COVID-19 briefing said alleged insurrectionists plan an action at the Capitol on January 17th.
“We need to bat 1K every day and trust that those who do show up do so in a peaceful manner,” said State Police Colonel Pat Callahan.
“FBI now reports in a bulletin ‘Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January.”
The FBI is seeking information that will assist in identifying individuals who are actively instigating violence in Washington, DC. The FBI is accepting tips and digital media depicting rioting and violence in the U.S. Capitol Building and surrounding area in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021.
He also decried those who refuse to identify and condemn those perpetrating the heinous act of treason.
“When you excuse their actions, you empower them to act again,” said Murphy.
