A number of school districts have called off school.
If you live in the hatched area, I recommend:
- Making sure you have a shelter area ready to go. It should include a flashlight with fresh batteries. A radio or television that will work even if the power fails. If you don't have a TV/radio of that nature, a smartphone will work. Make sure you wear shoes into the shelter.
- If you are hit, know where to turn off the electricity and gas.
- Keep the kids nearby.
- If you have an infirm friend or relative, make provisions now.
- Make sure you have adequate gas in the car. Pumps in your area may not be working if the power goes out.
I no longer "live blog" storms but I will update at least two more times today.
