Lots of stuff going around with tips on what to do ahead of the storm. The ones I had never heard before was, put large containers of water in your freezer NOW, and then if the power goes out, you can take the big frozen containers and put them in your fridge to keep things from spoiling for a little longer. Sort of like turning your fridge into a giant picnic cooler. You’d have to start now, though! It’d take a while to freeze a lot of water.
Also, you can get alerts from MEMA with a phone app:
Ping4alerts! is a new mobile communications app for alerting the public in emergencies and disasters. Through geofencing technology, ping4alerts! enables the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to send highly targeted, instant multimedia alerts to iPhone and Android devices to notify citizens about situations and events happening near them. The ping4alerts! FREE mobile app is one way that MEMA sends emergency information and messages.
You can also sign up for major storm alerts from National Grid by texting STORM to NGRID (64743). They also have a mobile website at www.nationalgrid.com, as well as a Facebook page and Twitter account.
