The Falls Township Emergency Management Coordinator is declaring a snow emergency for Wednesday’s snow storm. The declaration will last from 6 a.m. Wednesday until the same time Thursday.
Current forecasts predict 3 to 5 inches and may bring an icy glaze for the southeastern PA area, according to EMC Richard Dippolito.
Under a snow emergency, there are several procedures Falls residents must follow. People must move all vehicles, boats, and trailers must off the streets and in driveways.
This is so emergency responders can access and snow trucks can properly plow roads. Leaving a vehicle in the road may leave it vulnerable to towing or ticketing.
Thursday’s high temperatures will be in the mid-50’s, so any snow should melt quickly. In the meantime, expect slippery roads and sidewalks.
Dippolito warns this storm may bring down power lines and trees, which could cause power outages. He recommends having a generator ready for use.
THIS STORM MAY BRING DOWN WIRES AND TREES CAUSING POWER OUTAGES. IF YOU HAVE A GENERATOR, PLEASE MAKE SURE IT IS ACCESSIBLE AND READY FOR USE. NEVER USE A GENERATOR INSIDE YOUR HOME.
