first_imgGovernor Wolf Tours Areas Affected by Severe Weather and Flooding in Bradford County Press Release,  Weather Safety New Albany, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf visited Bradford County to tour some of the areas affected by the heavy rains and flooding that swept through the commonwealth over the past week. The governor was joined by PEMA Director Rick Flinn and Bradford County officials to see those areas hardest hit in the western portion of the county, including New Albany where damage to buildings and infrastructure from flash flooding was evident.“It’s been a very difficult summer for many Pennsylvanians dealing with weather-related damage to homes and businesses,” Gov. Wolf said. “It’s especially important for me to get out into affected communities to see first-hand the damage and to ask what the state can do to help,” Gov. Wolf said.The governor and officials saw the damage from flooding to multiple homes on Front Street in New Albany, speaking with residents along the way. They also saw the remains of the New Albany Community Library, most of which was washed away during flooding.Bradford County, along with six others in the state, has issued disaster declarations, as have many municipalities, which means that these areas relax some procurement protocols so supplies and any necessary equipment to aid in rescue or clean-up can be obtained more quickly.Residents were evacuated from New Albany, Camptown and Monroe in the county. There were multiple road closures, including a number of state roads. The Pennsylvania Helicopter Aquatic Rescue Team (PA-HART) conducted rescue missions yesterday with six people transported to the Towanda Hospital.“My first concern is the safety of residents and for that, I thank the first responders, local emergency management, PEMA, and the residents themselves who heeded warnings and knew what to do to get help,” Gov. Wolf said. “My gratitude goes out to the local emergency and law enforcement personnel here in Bradford County and around the state who are working tirelessly to keep residents safe and help them recover from this flooding.” August 15, 2018center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img Tesla Model 3 With Track Mode Toasts Tires: Incredible Drone Footage Watch Tesla Model 3 Track Mode Tested In The Snow This Tesla Model 3 Performance proves its worth.YouTuber Kristy Morgan was able to take her new Tesla Model 3 Performance to Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, California, but there’s a catch. She attended an event during which she learned how to drive a car on a closed track. Let’s just add here that we’re a bit jealous. Nonetheless, the Model 3 Performance fared extremely well. She was able to complete eight laps over the course of two days of training. At no time did the Tesla have any power limiting or braking issues. Kristy says she only called it quits to make sure she had enough juice for the journey home.More Tesla Model 3 Performance Track Mode Content: Source: Electric Vehicle News Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on December 13, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle Newscenter_img According to Teslarati, Kristy is a Tesla “engineer and supply chain professional with expertise in materials and services procurement, strategic sourcing, and supplier auditing.” This Tesla engineering program manager also appears to be a go-getter, since she had the initiative to take her Model 3 to the track for some much-needed education. Teslarati confirms that she participated in the BMW Car Club of America Golden Gate Chapter’s High-Performance Driver Education (HPDE) program. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if all drivers were forced to undergo such a situation?
