Motorists Reminded to Watch for Heavy Rain and Flooding; Monitor Weather Through the Holiday

first_img Holidays,  Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf is reminding motorists to be aware that heavy rain overnight, with rain showers through most of the day tomorrow, could impact travel across much of eastern Pennsylvania. Motorists should watch for ponding on roadways and flooding in poor drainage areas while traveling.“I want every Pennsylvanian and every visitor to our state to have a safe holiday season,” Gov. Wolf said. “Please don’t let the distractions of the holidays keep you from driving safely and heeding weather forecasts, especially as we anticipate heavy rain and possible flooding over the next day or so in the eastern portion of the state.”Anyone with properties along rivers and other waterways should keep an eye out for rising water levels from Friday morning into the weekend. Major flooding is not expected at this time, but conditions can change quickly.The National Weather Service says parts of the state could see scattered snow showers Friday into early next week. While significant accumulations are not anticipated, light amounts of snow can create hazardous road conditions.The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) will be in contact with county emergency management personnel to monitor any unmet local needs.PennDOT warns motorists not to drive across roads covered with water because even shallow, swiftly flowing water can wash a car from a roadway. Also, the roadbed may not be intact under the water. And never drive around barricades or signs on closed roads – Turn Around, Don’t Drown.Fines for going around a barricade are $250; if emergency responders need to perform a water rescue or have a vehicle towed, the fine increases to $500 plus two points on the driver’s license.Anyone planning to travel through the holiday weekend should closely monitor weather conditions along travel routes.Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 860 traffic cameras.511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Tardelli: Doyle still part of plans

first_imgAssistant manager Marco Tardelli has assured striker Kevin Doyle he still has a future with Ireland despite being dropped from the squad by text. Doyle spoke of his disappointment at learning of Trapattoni’s decision when he came off the pitch after scoring the winner in Wolves’ 2-1 npower Championship victory over Bristol City on Saturday in an interview with his club’s official website, www.wolves.co.uk. The 29-year-old said: “I was very disappointed to come in after the game to a text message saying I wasn’t to travel to Ireland to join up with the squad. “I have been in every squad when I have been fit for seven and a half years, so it was disappointing. I thought I might get a phone call, but it wasn’t to be and I haven’t spoken to the manager about it. “Maybe he will speak to me about it in the future and for now, I just have to get on with it. I have been in squads for seven and a half years and certainly never took it for granted and have always found it a great pleasure and privilege to play for my country. “I feel I have always given 100 per cent in terms of showing the right attitude and dedication with Ireland in every training session and every match, as I do here at Wolves. “I will carry on doing that and hopefully get another opportunity to do that again in the future. It was disappointing to get the text message telling me not to travel, particularly after such a good game with Wolves, and you quickly go from one extreme to another. “But that’s football – I’m not going to cry about it and just get on with it and hopefully get back in the squad as soon as I can.” The Wolves frontman was named in manager Giovanni Trapattoni’s provisional party for Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Sweden and the home clash with Austria four days later, but despite being a constant in the squad during the Italian’s reign, he did not make the final 23. Tardelli said: “We love all the players who have given us many successes and all players deserve the same things. The boss can’t call all the players. But for us, it’s not finished, the time for Kevin Doyle. We know he is a good player and we know in the future, it is possible for him to come back.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Experts Share Tips on How to Stay Safe During the Holidays

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisIt’s 17 days until Santa gets here, and it’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year. But with buying gifts and inviting family into the house this can become unsafe.“So the National Safety Council wants people to remember the “3 c’s.” We have cooking, candles, and your Christmas tree; those are some real fire hazards around the holidays. When in terms of cooking anything you should try to do it on the back burner just so your children can’t walk by and pull something off the stove. Set timers so that you not only know when your food is done but you also reduce the risk of the stove catching fire. As for Christmas trees they are so beautiful but don’t overload your lights nor more than 3 strands of lights in the same socket and then with candles blow them out before you leave the room or just buy fake ones,” National Safety Council Spokeswoman, Maureen Vogel said.Another thing to watch out for is a porch thief.“Being aware of when your package is being delivered and when it’s coming to you so that you can plan to be home or let a neighbor know. At the same time look out for your neighbors if you see that a package has arrived help them out,” Best Buy Smart Home Expert, Pedro Melendez explained.With new years right after Christmas, Vogel said drinking and driving increases.“Please designate a sober driver or make other arrangements. Ride, share, a taxi or whatever it takes please don’t get behind the wheel if you’ve had anything to drink,” Vogel shared.Removing unused medication is something most people tend to overlook.“Clean out your medicine cabinet. This is something that people don’t think about. Your unused pills, especially those highly addictive opioids they need to go. They shouldn’t be sitting in a medicine cabinet,” she noted.Other safety tips includes cleaning your house, and removing toys so that everyone has an enjoyable time.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Local Business Donates Oil Changes to Help Seniors for the HolidayNext Alpena Municipal Council Applies for State Grant on Behalf of NOAAlast_img read more
