Important Weather Announcement
Posted: 1 year, 9 months ago
Should the Town of Valdese have a weather event related due to hurricane Irma, the Town has an emergency response plan in place. Our primary concern is for the welfare and safety of our citizens. Citizens are reminded to please be prepared for issues as a result of significant rainfall and high winds beginning Monday September 11th. We encourage all citizens to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72-96 hours. Information on how to be self-sufficient and ready for an emergency situation can be found at readync.org. Emergency shelters will be available if needed by Burke County Emergency Management and Town of Valdese officials.
More information will be provided as we learn more about the projected path of the storm. For more information on preparedness and the storm visit ready.gov and the North Carolina Emergency Management Facebook Page. Updates will also be shared at townofovaldese.com and on the Town of Valdese Facebook Page.
