Frequent visitors to the Honesdale Borough website, www.honesdaleborough.com, will see a new post entitled “Severe Weather Event”.   Unveiled to the public Thursday, August 25, 2011, the webpage provides educational links to residents to assist in preparing for severe weather events, such as flooding and winter storms.

The webpage provides links to Ready Pennsylvania, the Federal Emergency Management Administration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Red Cross.

Unexpected events lead to financial, environmental loss, as well as loss of animal and human life.  Some key points of preparedness involve securing one’s home or business, developing an evacuation plan, and preparing a kit for use during an emergency situation.
