With the potential for heavy rains forecasted as a result of Hurricane Florence beginning on or around Wednesday, Amherst's Emergency Management Team is sharing a few tips to help community members prepare.
- If your basement is prone to flooding, please be sure to take the necessary steps to prevent or limit potential damage to your property.
- Please be mindful that the catch basins and storm drains in front of and around your homes are free of debris or other materials that could block the flow of water.
The Town will be updating our announcements as more information on the storm's impact on our area/region is made clear.
- You may also want to take a moment to sign up for our Emergency Alerts by visiting www.amherstma.gov/prepare or by simply texting "Join Amherst" to 30890 from the cellphone you wish to receive the alerts to.
If there are general questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
