Town Prepares for Hurricane Teddy

Environment Canada has issued a tropical cyclone information statement for parts of Atlantic Canada, including Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Hurricane Teddy is expected to bring high winds and significant rain to parts of Nova Scotia on Tuesday.

While the storm is not expected to impact New Brunswick as severely at this time, rain and windy conditions are forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. We are continuing to monitor this system and will keep you updates if conditions change. You can monitor storm alerts through Environment Canada or the New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization.

As a reminder, the Town of Sackville has an emergency alert system in place, Sentinel, to quickly share information about town emergencies. You can register for our Emergency Public Alert System here.

Residents are also encouraged to prepare for strong winds and heavy rain. Secure loose objects on your property, clean downspouts, etc., and have a 72-hour emergency preparedness kit on hand. You can find more information on a 72-hour emergency kit here.

Emergency services personnel and our Engineering and Public Works Department are in a state of readiness for the storm. Please check and our social media sites for any further updates.
