Hatboro has declared a disaster emergency and has opened its Emergency Operations Center to assist residents with non-emergency matters, or those which do not require police, fire, or EMS response, according to an alert posted on Nixle.
With conditions expected to worsen - with heavy rain, flooding and high winds - as a result of Hurricane Sandy, Hatboro closed borough hall at noon on Monday, the same time its Emergency Operations Center opened. The EOC will remain open "as long as necessary," according to the alert. To reach the EOC, residents should call 215-443-9100, which is the main number for borough hall.
Motorists are cautioned to not drive around or move barricades blocking roadways and to avoid unnecessary travel.
