Good afternoon Foley,
Although at this time it looks like we may be spared the brunt of Delta, we know from experience we need to continue to pay attention.
Alan Sealls reminds us that now is the time to have a plan.
- Remember that the first 72 hours is on you. Each family needs to have enough water/food/meds – everything for the first three days. For more information for your list, click here.
- Sand and bags were available today at the Foley Public Works Dept. Although we are out of bags, residents are welcome to sand if you bring your own bags at E. 120 Orchid Ave, from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m tomorrow.
- In case of bad weather, there is no way to fully protect debris piles. It is helpful to place heavy items on top of loose debris to stabilize it as much as possible.
- City workers are concentrating on picking up debris in low-lying areas for the rest of this week in case of heavy rain, and are also working to get debris out of ditches.
- Debris cleanup continues. D&J Enterprises, the city’s debris collector had 49 trucks in operation on Monday, Oct. 5. They picked up 374 loads of vegetative debris, bringing the 15 day total for pickup to 270,261 cubic yards.
- Stumps. Stumps will be picked up separately, after the rest of the debris is gathered. The trucks will not mix trunks in with the other debris.
- Gov. Ivey declared a state of emergency for Baldwin County yesterday, and Mayor John Koniar also declared one for the city. This allows officials to get resources into place in case the storm comes this way.
- At this time, there are no evacuation orders in place for Foley residents.
The City of Foley will continue to share updates through the City’s website and social media channels.
