A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR SULLIVAN CONCERNING HURRICANE SANDY
There are many homes in Cape Charles that have part time residents. With the impending storm and the possibility of strong winds and heavy rains, it would be prudent for each of us to pay attention to our neighbors’ homes. Below is a list of items for consideration to avoid damage from the winds that will come with the storm:
SECURE ALL OUTDOOR ITEMS IN CASE OF STRONG WINDS AND/OR FLOODING
- Lawn / yard furniture (tables, chairs, umbrellas, etc.)
- Decorative items
- Boat and utility trailers in the yard or the street
- The Public Works crew will be picking up all loose debris in the alleys and along the streets.
- Debris pickup will then be suspended until after the storm has passed.
- The trash barrels at the beach have been picked up and the trash receptacles on the fishing pier are being secured. All trash receptacles will be removed from the boardwalk and along Bay Avenue.
- Storm drains are being cleared.
- Please DO NOT put any yard debris, brush or other trash on the street curb. Any debris can pose a safety hazard in strong winds and will clog storm drains if any flooding occurs.
- DO NOT drive your vehicle through high water. If you cannot see the pavement, DO NOT go through it. This could cause irreparable damage to your vehicle.
- The wake created from driving through the water could cause damage to the houses along the street.
- During the last storm, there was street flooding up to Strawberry Street and a number of vehicles were lost due to the flooding. The parking lot of the former Meatland Building is available for your vehicles during this storm. Please consider moving your vehicles to this parking lot to help alleviate possible damage.
