High winds and heavy rains leading to power outages and flooding are expected to slam Berks County today as residents endure the onslaught of Hurricane Sandy.
Berks will likely be among the hardest-hit inland areas, and officials urged residents to prepare for the worst.
“This storm has not been overhyped,” Berks County Commissioner Christian Y. Leinbach said today. “It will have significant impact.”
Leinbach said residents should have up to three days of food and supplies should there be widespread power outages.
