MAINE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
State Gearing up for Another Wintry Mess
March 7, 2008
AUGUSTA, MAINE -- The Maine Emergency Management Agency once again urges Mainers to put safety uppermost as a mixed bag of dangerous weather moves into the State on Saturday.
“The National Weather Service has advised us to anticipate conditions ranging from potential street and small stream flooding in southern and central areas, to sleet, freezing rain and possibly significant icing farther inland, to more snow in the north,” MEMA Director Rob McAleer said. “It’s critical to stay tuned to National Weather Service forecasts for your area, because the hazards will be different depending on where you are.”
MEMA, County Emergency Management Agencies, utilities and state response agencies were briefed by the National Weather Service in a conference call earlier today.
“Emergency managers statewide have put response contingency plans together for the weekend, and individuals and families should too.” McAleer said.
Mainers are reminded to:
Important phone numbers and web sites:
The weekend storm is not expected to cause flooding on Maine’s major rivers, but may well add to water content in the snowpack in northern and western Maine. Flood potential will continue to be monitored closely as the spring progresses. Weekly snow survey reports and other flood potential information can be found at http://www.maine.gov/rfac
