Various emergency management agencies participated in the Severe Weather Emergency Preparedness Expo, hosted by Representative Frank Farry on August 26th at the Middletown Township Municipal Building in Langhorne. Glenn Cannon, Director of PA Emergency Management, explained his organization’s saying of “Be informed, be prepared and be involved.”
According to Director Cannon, the most common hazards in this state are floods. He explained that there are two types of floods: the ones you know are coming, and the flash floods that come on so quickly you have no advance time to prepare.
