Be sure to secure all outdoor items soon and watch for falling tree limbs and branches. Allow extra time to get to your destination and stay indoors, if possible! -ES

    Just a suggestion/request… I know this will be coming from the WNW primarily with this event and that it may vary and change, but a direction in the forecast/warning would be helpful in helping determine where to store items that can’t be secured or tied down easily. Many of us are limited on where we can put things with fences, building, trees, etc. paying a role in the decisions. Again, just a thought! Thanks guys!

    Я просто требуется некоторую информацию и был поиск на Google для него. Я посетил каждой страницы, которые пришли на первой странице и не получил каких-либо соответствующих результатов, то я подумал проверить второй и получил свой блог. Это то, что я хотел!
