Severe Weather Plan

Representatives with the Town of Indian Trail, along with local sheriff’s office and volunteer fire department leadership teams, met with the Union County Emergency Management Department on Friday to discuss storm preparedness and information Indian Trail residents need to know before possible severe weather starting Sunday/Monday in our region.

Current weather forecasts related to Hurricane Irma predict the Indian Trail area could see high sustained winds, flash flooding, river flooding and possibly isolated tornadoes over the coming few days. It is imperative that people in need during severe weather call 911 for help, and not to call Town offices or other local numbers for need as those phone lines may not function. All calls should be placed to 911.

The location of storm shelters will be posted on this page as soon as that information is available.

The Indian Trail Public Works Department and other Town officials will be working with the Union County Sheriff’s Office and local fire departments to respond to downed trees and other needs. Please call 911 to report any issues related to Hurricane Irma. Residents should be prepared for the possibility of severe weather, in addition to the possibility of a sustained power outage.

Residents can register for the county’s Code Red service to be alerted to severe weather updates by going to their website, www.co.union.nc.us/departments/public-safety/emergency-management, or calling 704-283-3572. Residents also should follow the County on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UnionCountyNC and on Twitter at https://twitter.com/UnionCountyNC. They also should follow the Town’s pages for news alerts, at www.facebook.com/IndianTrail and https://twitter.com/IndianTrailGOV.
