Pickering Asks Residents to Prepare for Potential Hurricane Impact

October 29, 2012

 

Pickering, ON, October 29, 2012 – As the remnants of Hurricane Sandy enter the GTA later today and into tomorrow, the City of Pickering is urging residents to exercise caution and to undertake simple actions to protect their families and homes.

High winds may result in blowing debris and downed trees/power lines. To minimize blowing debris, homeowners should store or secure Halloween decorations, outdoor furniture, or other items that could easily be blown away.

Homeowners should also have a family emergency kit prepared, especially with the higher risk of power outages. The kits should include the following items: flashlight; battery-operated radio; important documents; non-perishable foods; utensils; bottled water; clothing & footwear; hygiene products; and sleeping bags & blankets.

In the event of a power outage, homeowners are advised to use flashlights instead of candles or hurricane lamps. If using candles, they should be placed in a secure holder, covered with a glass chimney, and kept away from high traffic areas. Additionally, electrically-connected smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms will not work when the power is out, unless they have battery back-ups. Therefore, every home should have a battery-operated smoke alarm on every storey and a battery-operated carbon monoxide alarm. More fire safety information can be found at the Ontario Fire Marshal’s web page at www.ofm.gov.on.ca.

Catch basins blocked with leaves or debris can cause flooding. As such, crews have been dispatched across the city and are currently inspecting and clearing as many catch basins as possible. Homeowners and businesses are asked to do their part and clear their nearby catch basins. Additionally, residents are advised to avoid creeks and watercourses, and driving in low lying areas. The City has closed the waterfront trail in anticipation of high waves and the potential of storm surge.
