Town Prepares for Remnants of Hurricane Ida

Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for Southeast New Brunswick including Sackville. Moisture from the remnants of Hurricane Ida is expected to merge with a non-tropical weather system over the northeastern U.S. and bring significant rain to the province Thursday and into Friday. Rain will spread across the province during the day and will likely become heavy at times Thursday night. Latest indications show that periods of rain will likely linger over the province well into Friday and strong northerly winds will develop, especially over eastern sections. 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.
