Hurricane Sandy 2012

As Hurricane Sandy approaches, please make sure you have prepared. Visit your local city or county web site for preparedness information. Follow them on Twitter or Facebook. Visit the Ready Virginia site. Make a list of important phone numbers.

Severe weather like Hurricane Sandy can cause power outages, flooding, and other damage which can cause interruptions to your Internet connection. Before that happens, make sure you have alternate methods of getting up to date information and communicating with friends and family. Make sure you have a battery powered radio with fresh batteries. Make sure you have your cell phones charged and have your home and car charger for them.

If you have a land-line telephone at your location, make sure you have a corded (hard-wired) telephone that you can connect. Cordless telephones do not usually work during power outages.
