To Alert DC Subscribers:
District residents are urged to begin preparing now for the possibility of severe weather this weekend. Early forecasts indicate the possibility that the District will be impacted by Hanna, which is expected to reach the District on Saturday. The storm may bring heavy rains and high winds.
Residents are urged to review their family plan to be sure information is current and up-to-date. Among the points to consider are what you would do if you and your family members were separated or if an emergency occurred while your child was at school and your were at work. More information about how to make a plan is available at on line at http://eic.rrc.dc.gov/eic/cwp/view.asp?a=1272&q=567962&cat=2.

Medical supplies, a flashlight, a battery-powered radio and extra batteries, along with supplies for infants or pets should also be included. For additional information about how to make a kit, visit
