Providence, RI (WLNE) – Governor Dan McKee held a press conference on Saturday to take stock of preparations for Hurricane Henri. He said the best thing anyone can do to stay safe is stay at home. “From midnight tonight, stay home until Monday morning,” Governor McKee said.
He said he had been in contact with President Biden about the need for resources during and after the storm.
He said the resources are in place and the state is in constant contact with federal partners.
Governor McKee says the following should be on your checklist: secure your home, bring your patio furniture, charge phones and laptops, and pack an emergency supplies kit. Additionally, emergency management says you need to identify a safe space inside your home and be prepared to go there at all times.
Governor McKee also encouraged everyone to closely monitor weather conditions and sign up for Code Red. You can sign up for Code Red at this link: https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/BF1E5F52D694
