The Bethel Office of Emergency Management is urging residents to prepare for any impact from Hurricane Jose. Bethel Officials are monitoring the storm and believe impacts should be minimal, with winds around 20-25 miles per hour, with higher gusts Tuesday into Wednesday morning. They expect some scattered power outages due to the wind. Some intermittent heavy rain bands may cause small, localized flooding in the normally prone areas. Officials say now is a good time to check flashlight batteries, clear storm drains and gutters, bring in any loose lawn furniture or wind prone items to be safe.
