Niagara Falls prepares for Hurricane Sandy
The city of Niagara Falls is making preparations for when Hurricane Sandy hits Niagara.
The remnants of this hurricane are forecasted to directly affect Niagara Monday evening and early Tuesday morning with high winds and lots of rain.
Operations Superintendent John Morocco tells 610 CKTB News they are hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.
He says municipal crews will be prepared to respond to tree issues and potential flooding situations.
He is asking that residents inspect their sump pumps for proper operation and to secure or store patio furniture.
Morocco says residents could assist crews by removing leaves or debris from the tops of catch basins in front of or near or their homes.
He is asking that during the storm residents stay clear of large trees or any downed utility lines, and if possible remain indoors until the event has subsided.
