Tropical Storm Watch ● August 2, 2020
This is the time of year when we review our emergency procedures and plans to be sure we are able to keep our services running during severe weather and, if there is an interruption, to resume service as soon as possible following a storm. Part of our preparations include letting our riders and communities know where to go for information about service changes or cancellations during storms of any kind.
Please refer to the latest forecast on Isaias from the National Hurricane Center. While it`s too early to provide any specific details on the impacts from the storm, it needs to be closely monitored. Potential impacts during the Monday night to Wednesday time period include heavy rainfall and tropical storm force winds, coastal flooding, and hazardous surf.
