PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Punxsy mayor Jim Wehrle has declared a declaration of disaster emergency in the Borough of Punxsutawney effective Monday at 6 p.m. to enable staff and related officials to respond effectively to any possible impact of Hurricane Sandy in the borough.
The storm, which will begin to hit the mid-state area sometime Monday evening, is expected to bring heavy rain to the borough and region, resulting in low area flash-flooding and wind-related power outages, which could last for several days. Sustained high winds will likely contribute to tree damage around the borough as well.
The Punxsutawney Area School District has cancelled all classes for Tuesday, October 30 due to the forecasted weather.
Also cancelled are all sporting events for tonight, Monday, October 29 and tomorrow, Tuesday, October 30.
