It's going to rain. It's going to rain on top of already saturated ground which means everyone in the Catawba County area is at risk for flooding and downed trees which can take out power lines. Everyone needs to keep constant awareness of their surroundings as things can change very quickly
- Keep your NOAA Weather Radio turned on and make sure you have fresh batteries. It is loud and obnoxious for a reason: to save lives.
- Be sure to monitor LOCAL TV and radio (that means Charlotte and Hickory stations) for news and announcements about heavy rain and flooding.
- Make sure you are registered for the Community Alert System (powered by CodeRED)? The County and the municipalities use this to give our citizens official news and emergency instructions via phone, text and email. Citizens can control how you get the information. www.catawbacountync.gov/alert
