Warminster Declares Local Disaster Emergency
The township made the announcement at 11 a.m. Monday morning.
Warminster Township declared a Local Disaster Emergency due to the impending weather conditions from Hurricane Sandy.
Record amounts of rainfall, high winds, and flooding conditions are anticipated within the township. Local areas that commonly flood and low-lying areas will most likely experience flooding.

- If you become trapped in your car or home by floodwaters call 9-1-1.
