10/27: Preparing for Hurricane Sandy Flooding

Communities up and down the east coast are bracing for the impact of Hurricane Sandy which could cause massive flooding and other damage.

CNN reports that some spots could see the worst rains in 500 years.  You can get the latest advisories from NOAA’s StormCentral.

If you live in the path of the hurricane, take action to protect your home and loved ones. To prepare for a flood, FEMA urges people to prepare an emergency kit and make a family communications plan. The Red Cross has resources on how to keep your home and family safe. And the Humane Society has resources on preparing your pets, too.
