As the National Hurricane Center continues to track Hurricane Irma, traveling north toward the United States with potential of affecting our region next week, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia wants to ensure those in our area—especially the seniors we serve—remain safe.
Already this season, we’ve witnessed the devastating impact that hurricanes can cause with Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Irma in the Caribbean. High winds, heavy rainfall, tornadoes, and flooding can be felt hundreds of miles inland, potentially causing loss of life and catastrophic damage to property. We want those in our region to be prepared and safe.
Currently, according to Super Doppler 10 weather, we are NOT in the forecast cone for Hurricane Irma. Yet, the path for such storms can change. Tomorrow as a part of our already United Way Day of Caring activities, we will be delivering emergency meals to some of our clients. And as the storm approaches, we will continue to issue updates via our website and Facebook page concerning our services, tips, and office hours. In the meantime, be sure to check out general information and preparation tips through www.ready.gov and download the Super Doppler 10 Hurricane Ready 2017 guide.
