Earlier today, I joined a call for councilmembers with City Administrator Rashad Young. D.C. government is in all-hands-on-deck mode for this potentially hazardous and historic storm. Our first priority will be to ensure the health and safety of residents and visitors, and then to begin the recovery, which likely will take multiple days.
Below is information to help you in case of emergency. I join Mayor Bowser, City Administrator Young, and my colleagues in urging you to take this storm very seriously, to complete all travel by early this afternoon, and to enjoy your home or that of family members or friends for the next 72 hours.
Thanks very much, and please let me know if I can be of assistance.
