Like all Mecklenburg County residents, I am concerned about Hurricane Florence. While there are reasons for caution, I want you to be assured that our Mecklenburg County government has been preparing for the storm and many dedicated professionals will be working through the inclement weather to be responsive to whatever may occur over the next few days.
I encourage you to monitor updates on emergency services at MeckNC.gov or follow our Facebook and Twitter feeds. We are blessed to have so many brave men and women who put their safety at risk in order to preserve ours.
As we brace for the storm, let each of us resolve to be safe and take care of our neighbors. Please remain indoors, have plenty of food and water on hand, park in a garage if possible, and stabilize any patio furniture.
United, we will get through this.
Mecklenburg County Commissioner, At-Large
