November 16 '06: The Monterey County Board of Supervisors in California have announced a "Winter Storm Preparedness Week", a local CBS affiliate reported Monday. The program's goal is to urge county residents to "develop emergency plans and gather emergency supplies" during the winter months.
The program was developed by the county's Department of Emergency Services that will host a preparedness briefing with community responder agencies Wednesday. "In past years," CBS5 reported, "winter storms have caused flooding, mud slides, infrastructure damage, coastal erosion and loss of utility services."
