In a storm preparation meeting on Sunday, Radnor Township manager Bob Zienkowski said the township is “ready to handle whatever comes at us that we can control.”
Sgt. George Smith, the township’s Emergency Management Coordinator, said that if the storm lands in South New Jersey that Radnor could get 6 to 8 inches of rain. If it takes the “good track” Radnor could still get 2 to 4 inches of rain.
- All parks will be closed at 8 am Monday for the storm’s duration.
- Trash collection (District 1) will take place Monday, but not Tuesday and Wednesday. Some will have to wait until possibly Thursday for pick up.
- Starting Monday at 6 a.m. the township’s emergency management center will be open 24 hours a day and manned by staff. You can call 610.688.0503 or 610.688.5600 to contact them.
- All township parking lots (except for the South Wayne municipal parking lot) will remain open with free parking throughout the storm for residents in flood prone areas.
- All public meetings will be cancelled for the week.
- According to director Kathy Mulroy, the Radnor Library plans on opening Monday morning but close possibly around 1 p.m. And as soon as they can reopen they will so people can charge their electronics, she said. The library is urging people to hold on to their books until Wednesday. No fines will accrue on Monday or Tuesday on books that are due.
- The township will have contracted tree crews removing trees throughout the entire storm event. (This does not mean power will come back faster because PECO crews still need to get out.)
