Stoffa Signs Declaration of Disaster
You can track Hurricane Irene locally at the Northampton County EMS. The latest situation report, published at midnight, indicates there will be moderate to major flooding along the Delaware River in Easton. In the event it becomes necessary, Red Cross has activated a shelter in Bethlehem with a capacity of 800. A 100-person shelter in Easton, with generator power, has been identified. Electric utilities have pre-positioned restoration equipment. There are no casulaties, but County Executive John Stoffa has signed a Declaration of Disaster.
