Declaration of Emergency made in Bradford County
Anticipating Hurricane Sandy's development and projected impacts to the area, Bradford County Commissioners have signed a Declaration of Emergency.
According to a statement from the county:
"At this time, we know that winds will gradually pick up during the day Monday and are expected to become very damaging at their peak intensities from Monday night into Tuesday morning. We expect sustained winds of at least 40 mph with gusts possible up to 60-75 mph. There is a significant threat of long-term, widespread power outages. We are expecting 2-3 inches of rainfall for this storm. River flooding is not expected to be an issue, but flash flooding in small streams and areas of run-off are still a concern. Those in areas of normal flash flooding need to especially aware of rapidly changing conditions."
