The City of College Park is actively monitoring the weather 24/7 to prepare for the storm. In preparation for potential high winds and area flooding, the City’s Department of Public Works crews are inspecting low lying inlets and storm drains that are prone to flooding to ensure that they are clean and free of debris, checking and readying all equipment and prepping staff for possible impact.

Prepare your home and household for the hurricane by making sure that all drains are clear, sump pumps are working correctly and by bringing all loose outdoor items inside. Make sure to also have emergency supplies on hand in case of power outages.
