To the Citizens of Wythe County

Florence continues to be projected to affect our county. With the recent amount of precipitation that we have accumulated over the past month, Wythe County is in prime condition for flooding with very minimal additional rainfall. The Department of Emergency Management is urging citizens in areas that are prone to flooding to make arrangements now. If you live in one of these areas, please heed the warnings and be prepared. Make arrangements for safe shelter outside of the affected area. Flood waters and damages from them could last 48 hours or more. Whether you go to family or friends houses or a hotel, this could be safer than trying to ride the floods out at home.

If you have animals, plan for them as well. Don’t leave animals in flooding areas, make plans for them. If you should have to leave your home with your animal, make sure to pack food and water for the animal. Also make sure to have the animal’s medications, papers, and necessities.

If you decide to stay home in a flooding situation, know that you are putting yourself and family at great risk. Inland flooding is the number one cause of deaths during hurricanes. If this is what you decide, let friends or family know your where-a-bouts in case of emergencies. Power outages are a high probability as well with the winds and rains. Be prepared.

Wythe County values the lives of all the citizens. Please heed the warnings and keep informed through local media such as TV and Radio. More updates will be added to the Wythe County Webpage and Facebook page as we get closer to this event. We hope for the best but we should all prepare. Stay safe!

ATTENTION RECREATIONAL VEHICLE OWNERS

In light of the upcoming event of hurricane Florence, there is a potential for large amounts of rainfall which could cause flooding in low lying areas and especially in the designated flood zones of Wythe County. We would like to remind everyone to please take precautions and move your camper or RV out of these areas before it’s to late. A camper swept away by flood waters could cause a dangerous situation if it prevents the flow of water under a bridge. Please remove any items that are an accessory to your camper that may have the potential to float such as propane tanks. If there are questions or concerns or you are not sure if you’re in a flood zone, contact the Wythe County Building Department and we will help you assess the flood zones.

To: Citizens of Wythe County

We have been receiving phone calls to our Emergency Communications Center about the upcoming storms. Wythe County would like to address the situation. Hurricane Florence looks from reports to be heading towards the Carolinas and moving inland. The direct path still has time to change and may vary from the predictions. In any case, the Department of Emergency Management urges the citizens of Wythe County to take steps to always be in a state of readiness no matter the situation.

Households should have:

Water- One gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation

Food- At least a three-day supply of non-perishable food

• Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert

Extra Medications-your prescription and over the counter for three days

• Flashlight

• First Aid Kit

• Extra Batteries

• Whistle to signal for help

• Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape in case of sheltering-in-place

• Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties for personal sanitation.

• Wrench or Plier

• Manual can opener for food

• Local Maps

• Cell phone with chargers and a backup battery

Please take notice of the possible dangers that are present and have a plan for the worst. Stay alert through media outlets such as TV and radio for updates. Please visit the Wythe County webpage to sign-up for citizen alerts and like the Wythe County Facebook page to get up to date information. If you have questions please contact the Department of Emergency Management. We pray for the best for all.
