Upcoming Weather – Hurricane Sally

Your Title Goes Here

Dear Wintervillians:

We are watching Hurricane Sally and stand ready.

Equipment has been checked out and fuel has been topped off. We expect heavy rainfall over the next few days so be careful if you must travel.

The concern during this type of storm centers around the softening ground and the large trees throughout the city. Be mindful and alert to this concern as you shelter inside your home.

The Winterville Volunteer Fire Department, Winterville PD, Public Works and I will all be on call and ready to help you in case of emergency. We will open the Community Center for anyone who becomes displaced from their home or is in need of shelter from this storm.

Stay safe!

Sincerely,
Dodd I. Ferrelle, Mayor
