County urges residents to make hurricane plans
Powerful Hurricane Matthew is bringing mayhem to Haiti and is expected to rake the Florida coast, some parts of which are now under a hurricane watch.
No evacuation orders have been issued in Florida, but Palm Beach County emergency officials are urging residents to prepare for impacts.
The county’s new web site has links to hurricane preparedness information, including information on shelters, pet care and transportation.
