Police Chief Gary MacNamara will meet with residents and the media at Penfield Beach at 2 p.m. Sunday.

MacNamara has been updating residents on storm preparations via his Twitter feed, twitter.com/ChiefGaryMac.

MacNamara said Sunday around 8 a.m. that the weather is expected to get “much worse” early Monday.

“Be in place by early Monday morning in [a] safe place to ride it out,” he wrote.

“Even if you have never evacuated before in other storms, now is not the time to stay,” the chief wrote. “This storm is predicted to devastate flood areas.”

Extra police will patrol evacuated areas, MacNamara wrote.

He advised those who are evacuated to take all needed items, including pets, medications and personal papers.

“It may be several days before you can return,” MacNamara said.
