A notification will be sent to notify you of any decision at that time. Please continue to monitor the situation with Florence and make sure that you, your family and your neighbors are prepared and safe. Stay safe, Jon Taylor Emergency Services Coordinator

A message from Jon Taylor, Mecklenburg Emergency Services Director. The predictions overnight have shifted the storm to a more southernly track where it slows as it approaches the North Carolina Coast then jogging down into South Carolina and moving west from there. If it continues on that track it could reduce the potential damage to our area. The change in the potential track reduces the predicted rainfall in our area to 4" to 6" and reduces our chances of tropical storm force winds to the 40 to 50 percent range. Although, this is better news for our area WE DO NOT NEED TO DROP OUR GUARD! the potential track of this storm has changed more than a few times and it has been very difficult for the experts to predict its path and it could change again! Be safe!

In preparation of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Florence the Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors declared a local state of emergency on Monday September 10, 2018. County residents should be prepared for a potentially prolonged and exceptional heavy rainfall event with possible tropical storm force winds. The county nor any of the localities has or operates a STORM SHELTER everyone should prepare to shelter in-place during this event. Stock up on food that does not require electricity to prepare and plenty of water for drinking and sanitary reasons. Make sure that you not only have enough supplies for your family but your pets as well. Fill up your vehicles with fuel and test generators if you have them. If you are utilizing a portable generator don’t use it inside of a structure. Make sure it is in a well ventilated location outside. Once the storm begins please stay in home and off of the roads. If you get caught out in the storm do not cross flooded roadways your vehicle could get swept away putting your life in danger. If the storm gets to bad emergency responders may not be able to help you. Please keep calls to 911 for extreme emergencies only. After the storm has passed check on your neighbors make sure that everyone in ok. Do not go near downed powerlines. The utility companies will be working hard to restore your services, so be patient. When cleaning up after the storm be safe, take your time do not over exert yourself. Emergency responders may have extended response times due to increased call volume and blocked roads. If the storm continues on its same path and continues to have the potential to stall over our area the county has made plans to open two emergency shelters one in South Hill at the Southside Rescue Squad Building(810 W Atlantic St, South Hill, VA 23970) and one in Chase City at the Chase city Rescue Squad Building (335 Mecklenburg Dr, Chase City, VA 23924). These shelters are for emergency only i.e.: something has happened to your house and you don’t have anywhere to go or you have a medical device that requires electricity and your power is out. THESE SHETLERS WERE NOT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE STORM PROTECTION! We will announce on the local radio stations when or if we plan on opening these shelters.

The town will be picking up ALL residential and business garbage on Wednesday morning starting at 7am due to the impending storm. There will be NO pickups on Thursday or Friday of this week.

Buckle up!!

Drive sober or get pulled over!!
